Together at Home is our service for people who are unable to attend our group-based delivery. ​ Volunteers will be matched with a person living with Dementia and their carer and given training so that they can visit once a week to do some fun, social, creative, music-based or gentle exercise activities. ​ If you would prefer to work 1:1 instead of in a group, please submit an Expression of Interest Form and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. Role Description Together at Home volunteers need to be knowledgeable, confident, reliable people our members can depend on for a regular form of weekly contact, either over the phone or face-to-face at their home. Volunteers on the Together at Home programme must complete a 1 day training course before they can be matched to a member, and they will then contact that person once per week. Volunteers must update Together Dementia Support after each contact. ⭕️ Attend a 1 day training course specific to Together at Home programme delivery ⭕️ Contact their member regularly, once per week, either over the phone or via home visit ⭕️ Complete relevant post-visit/contact feedback forms and return to manager If you are interested in becoming a Together at Home volunteer, please click here to complete our Expression of Interest Form.

If you are an experienced driver and would like to help out in your local community, why not volunteer to drive our Torneo or minibus? People in your local area depend on the transport we provide in order to get to groups and access vital support. If you are interested in volunteering as a driver for us, you must have a clean license and be willing to take part in a test drive of the smaller Torneo vehicle. Please submit an Expression of Interest Form if you would like to volunteer, or you can apply for one of our paid driver roles by visiting the Current Vacancies page on the Jobs Board.
