As a volunteer raising awareness, you’ll help make sure the real needs and concerns of people with dementia and their carers are addressed.

Dementia is Britain’s biggest killer. There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025. This is why we need your help creating a society that’s both dementia aware and dementia friendly.

Find out what’s available in your area and join the fight against dementia.

Whether you can give an hour, a day or more, there are lots of ways you can raise awareness of dementia with Alzheimer’s Society.

Activities you may be involved with include;

  • Distribution of leaflets, booklets and posters
  • Attending local groups, gatherings and community events
  • Public speaking and presentations

No experience is required, but training is available for those interested in taking on a public speaking role.
