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.
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 Ambassador 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 Ambassador. 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 your interest
