Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Alzheimer Scotland

We could not exist without the help of hundreds of volunteers all over Scotland. Our volunteers receive training and support, and we pay expenses.

Scottish Dementia Working Group Volunteer - East Renfrewshire

sdwgThe Scottish Dementia Working Group (SDWG) are the independent voice of people with dementia within Alzheimer Scotland.  All members of the SDWG have a diagnosis of dementia. 

We are a friendly group led by people with dementia.  As a national group our members attend meetings, events and conferences across Scotland.  We urgently need friendly and reliable volunteers to support our members when travelling to group activities.

We are looking for volunteers to start as soon as possible and ideally commit to a few days each month.  Opportunities can be flexible as meetings and demand vary across the year.

All travel expenses will be covered.  Essential training and support will be provided including dementia awareness training. 

For this role Alzheimer Scotland volunteers are required to complete PVG Scheme Membership.
