Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity. We provide information and support, improve care and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.

Where is it you want me to volunteer?

Redruth and/or Camborne

What will I be doing?

Using your own car (for which a fair mileage allowance is paid), you will be supporting people with dementia and their carers to attend cafés, support groups and a variety of locations. Your involvement will ensure that those people who cannot make their own way to our services are supported with safe and reliable travel arrangements.

We would like you to

• Provide a safe, comfortable and reliable travelling experience to those who need it

• Ensure the people who use our transport feel safe and cared for.

How much time do you expect me to commit?

Camborne Memory Café is open from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on the first and third Wednesday of the month at Church View Road, Tuckingmill, Camborne, TR14 8RQ.

Redruth Memory Café is open from 1.30pm to 3.30pm on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month at Foundry Row, Redruth, TR15 1AN.

People will require transport around these times.

Your actual volunteering hours would be negotiable dependent on current transport needs and your availability.
