Information for volunteers
Dementia Friendly Keighley has recently launched their Befriending Project; Time to take; Aire, which covers the Aire Valley. We are looking for volunteers able to visit our clients who are living with dementia and their carers. Our provisions are bespoke to the client's needs and we aim to match up clients and befrienders on mutual interests. Support may be home-based, gentle walks or accompanying them to local groups to support their wellbeing.
