We couldn’t do our life-changing work without the support of our volunteers – they dedicate their time and experience to helping us drive positive change.

We have volunteers of all ages and from all walks of life. Here, some of our volunteers share, in their own words, why and how they are involved with Dementia NI. If you'd like to join the team, have a look at our current opportunities then fill in our form to register your interest.

"I support the Omagh Empowerment Group, ensuring members feel comfortable and offering practical help. It's a fulfilling role and Dementia NI are very supportive of their volunteers. I've learnt lots about dementia."

Kara Sloane, Empowerment Group Support Volunteer, Omagh

"My wife Julie has a diagnosis of dementia and is a Dementia NI member, which led me to volunteer. As a volunteer driver, I pick members up and take them to their Empowerment Groups. It's very rewarding."

George Sweetlove, Volunteer Driver, Belfast

"When I retired, I wanted to give back. Four years on, I'm still volunteering for Dementia NI. My favourite part is getting the members talking and listening to their stories about the interesting things they've done in their lives."

Barbara Campbell, Empowerment Group Support Volunteer, Armagh

"Volunteering with Dementia NI has been one of the most incredible experiences I've had. I know I'm helping to change lives and there is no feeling like it. For me, it's only a few hours but it means the world to our members."

Reese Cochrane, Community Awareness Volunteer, Carrickfergus

"I do a range of volunteering opportunities which fit around my time, including fundraising. I do a lot of crafting and sell my work with the proceeds going to Dementia NI. I know what I do makes a difference."

Liz Stitt, Volunteer Fundraiser, Newtownabbey

"I really enjoy my volunteering for Dementia NI. I get so much pleasure knowing I am giving my talents and time to a wonderful cause in helping those living with dementia."
