Volunteer with Alzheimer’s Society to support people living with Dementia in Bristol. Do more. Explore more. Enjoy more. Sign up for Side by Side.
This fun, friendly, flexible volunteering opportunity matches you with someone with dementia so you can help them keep on doing the things they love – and try new things too.
That might be going to a football match. Catching the latest movie. A jog round the park, a splash in the pool, a mooch around the shops, a catch-up over coffee or supporting them to volunteer themselves.
Whatever they’d like to do, together you decide where and when. One thing you can
be sure of is bringing a lot of joy into someone’s life by empowering them to continue playing an active part in their community.
With someone developing dementia every three minutes, there are nearly 1,000 people waiting for volunteers right now.
Sign up for Side by Side and get ready to make a difference: not only to their lives, but to yours.
