About The Role

Are you passionate about enabling people affected by dementia to share their experiences and be heard? If so, then we’d love to hear from you!

Local Dementia Voice activities enable people living with dementia to engage in meaningful activities within a group setting, either online or face-to-face, and to have a voice. They do this by using their experiences to influence the work both of Alzheimer's Society and the health and social care environment on matters to improve the quality of their lives.

You’ll help to set up the room and tidy away at the end of the group as well as prepare and handout refreshments. You’ll welcome and talk with people living with dementia and assist them where necessary to engage in Dementia Voice activities and, if supporting an online group, to join in the conversation. Some light administration duties, such as registering attendees or taking meeting notes may also be involved.

The Dementia Voice group takes place at Beehive Care in Ferring, West Sussex on the third Wednesday of each month, from 10.30am to 1pm.

  • You have good communication skills, especially listening, and are organised.
  • You enjoy meeting new people and being part of a team.
  • You are over the age of 16
