Dementia Friendly Awareness Raiser-Dumbarton

  • VO84396


Description

We want to make West Dunbartonshire a Dementia Friendly authority. We believe anyone living with dementia and their carers should be supported to live well in the community, and feel able to access services and activities, as and when they choose to.
To help us share the message and build interest and support, we provide information and awareness sessions all across the area. We need volunteers, like you, to help us keep track of and deliver the sessions alongside our network of Dementia Ambassadors.

We will ask you to

  • Work with us to make sure every session enquiry is followed up
  • Help arrange the awareness diary - taking bookings and contacting session leaders
  • Make up information packs for local organisations
  • Help facilitate the sessions on the day (only if you want to)
  • Keep track of any dementia pledges made in the sessions

If you get involved we can offer you the chance to:

  • Learn more about dementia and how it impacts everyday life
  • Meet new interesting people
  • Make a real difference in the lives of people in your community.
