We are currently undergoing some exciting changes with our Dementia Friends Champions role! We are changing the role to Dementia Friend Ambassador, giving our volunteers the opportunity to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s Society and inspire even more people. Click here for more information about the changes. Because of these changes, we are currently not taking any more registrations for Champions. Please check back to see when registrations will open for Ambassadors.

  • Genuinely have the time to run Dementia Friends information sessions and reach around 100 people
