Please note: following the Government's advice on Coronavirus (Covid-19), we are not currently able to offer induction days for new Champions. We have asked our team of existing volunteer Champions to postpone all face-to-face Dementia Friends Information Sessions. Instead, they are now able to deliver online Information Sessions via webinar or livestream.
Dementia Friends is being run by Alzheimer's Society. Alzheimer's Society is working with lots of volunteers and other organisations to achieve this goal.
At the moment we can only run Dementia Friends Champions inductions in England and Wales. So if you live elsewhere, you can follow us on social media, sign up to the e-newsletter and check the Alzheimer's Society website for volunteering opportunities in your area (see links below).
For people living in England and Wales, we understand that not everyone will want to, or have the time to, become a Dementia Friends Champion. You can still be part of the Dementia Friends initiative by becoming a Dementia Friend.
You could also encourage your colleagues to become Dementia Friends, particularly if your work brings you into contact with people living with dementia.Register as a Dementia Friends Champion
