Volunteering that suits you

Everyone has their own reason for wanting to donate their time. Sometimes it is because we have supported a family member and you want to 'give something back'. You may have a general interest in our work or want to do something positive to support your community. You may have specialist skills you are happy to share, or you may be hoping to gain valuable experience,new skills and insight as you embark on a career in health or social care. 

Whatever your motivation, you'll be part of a friendly team, you'll make a difference and have fun at the same time. 

Flexible roles

We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities with different levels of commitment and it is up to you how much time you can give. Even a few hours a month can make a big difference to the services we can provide. Our volunteers range from teenage school and college students to 80-years-youngsters; age is never a barrier to volunteering at Alzheimer's Support. 

Please browse our regular volunteer roles, but remember you can 'mix and match', and please let us know if you have other skills or experience that you think will be helpful. We are always happy to listen to your ideas and take them on board if we can.

Training and support

Annie Clayton is our dedicated Volunteer Co-ordinator. She will welcome you to the organisation, help you find the role that suits you best and ensure that you get the training and support you need to make your time with us enjoyable and rewarding.

All our volunteers are expected to attend a one-hour information session to become a Dementia Friend and we offer additional training in dementia awareness for many roles. Some roles also require a DBS check.

We also run occasional events to help everyone get to know the organisation, and each other, better. A dedicated Volunteer Bulletin is published twice a year and you will receive regular newsletters and email bulletins to keep everyone up to date.

Young people are particularly welcome in our day clubs. We have links with Bath University, Wiltshire College and local schools, and those who spend time with us range from trainee doctors and social care students to Duke of Edinburgh Award volunteers who all gain invaluable knowledge and experience. 

For more information about volunteering for Alzheimer's Support please contact Annie by phone on 01225 776481 or email Annie. Please note she works on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please phone the office for support at any other time.
