Keeping in touch

What is Keeping in Touch?

Keeping in Touch is a telephone-based service, and as a volunteer you will make calls to people affected by dementia. The calls are to check in and ensure that people are receiving the support they need or if their support needs have changed. By taking a personal and warm approach to their roles, our volunteers provide a friendly, tailored support service.  

Who can volunteer?

If you like to talk, are a good listener and passionate about helping people, we would love to hear from you.  You will have the opportunity to learn new skills and speak to a range of people.  You just need to be 16 years-old and able to travel to one of our service locations below volunteer. You will be given all the training and support you need.

How often do I need to volunteer?

We expect KIT volunteers to offer at least one hour per week but you’re welcome to do more. 

'Alzheimer’s Society gives you a lot of training and you grow with the charity –  they follow you in your journey.' - Alzheimer’s Society Volunteer
