Volunteer as a Dementia Friends Champion

Dementia Friends Champions are trained volunteers who encourage people to learn a little bit more about dementia. Champions run Information Sessions in their community and inspire others to help those living with dementia live well.

Update on becoming a Champion during the Coronavirus pandemic

Please note: following the Government's advice on Coronavirus (Covid-19), we are not currently able to offer face-to-face induction days for new Champions. We are developing a virtual induction day and you can still register to become a Champion in the meantime, by following steps 1 to 3 on our registration page below. You won't be able to book an induction after verifying your account but by registering your details, we can get in touch to let you know as soon as there are inductions available to book onto.
