Wellbeing Activity Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers at our hub in Burton Leonard, between Ripon and Harrogate. We provide a full day of activity for people with dementia, at the hub. Volunteers support our staff at the hub to ensure the small group of people that come are able to engage in meaningful activity, which may include music, crafts, exercise and gardening. It's good fun and very rewarding. We run a rota so volunteers can come at a time to suit them.

We provide dementia awareness training so no experience is necessary. We are looking for friendly, welcoming volunteers who have an empathy for people living with dementia and who would enjoy supporting people to access activities.
