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 Champions Inductions during the Coronavirus pandemic

We are not currently able to offer Champions induction days, to train new Dementia Friends Champions. We are working hard behind-the-scenes to review it and we hope to be able to share more details about our new virtual induction in the near future.

In the meantime, we recommend you register your interest by providing your details on the registration page. We will then be in touch with you to offer help and support in all the exciting ways you can get involved and take action for people affected by dementia.
