We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.
Please note, organisations are currently experiencing a large volume of enquiries from people looking to help out. They may not always be able to meet this demand so please be patient, you may not receive a quick response or be assigned to a role.
Alzheimer Scotland is Scotland’s national dementia charity. Our aim is to make sure nobody faces dementia alone. We provide support and information to people with dementia, their carer and families, we campaign for the rights of people with dementia and fund vital dementia research.
• Aged over 21
• Good with people, friendly and an excellent communicator
• Happy to use your own vehicle to transport people living with dementia to activities in your local area

• Wanting to volunteer and learn something new?
Our Volunteer Drivers help us to make it possible for people living with dementia to attend planned activities and support groups in their local area. Many people living with dementia no longer drive and some can have difficulty using public transport, volunteer drivers are vital helping us to keep people involved in their local communities.
If you are aged 21 or over, have access to a vehicle, hold a valid driving licence and have done so for 2 years, MOT and insurance and have some time to offer on a regular basis, Alzheimer Scotland wants to hear from you!
