London Arts Challenge in 2012 Project Volunteer


Arts 4 Dementia is running a programme of pilot projects for people in the early stages of dementia, and their carers, covering arts, dance, comedy, drama, music, photography and poetry around London in 2012. Most comprise a series of weekly sessions at arts venues, led by trained artists and educators. With volunteer training, and monitoring and evaluation each week, these will offer innovative, enjoyable and rewarding experience. There will be an intergenerational team spirit, in association with both Arts 4 Dementia and the arts organisation. 

Your Responsibilities
  • You will be responsible to Arts 4 Dementia.
  • Your presence at every session of your chosen project will be valued by participants, as familiarity is helpful to people with memory problems.
  • Your keen interest in the participants will contribute to the monitoring, development and evaluation of the project.
Your Skills and Experience
  • You are articulate and professional, able to communicate clearly and effectively to people reaching out to Arts 4 Dementia.
  • You have a keen interest and some experience in the art of the project.
  • You have experience of interaction with the elderly, and understanding and appreciation of character.
  • Drawing on your university experience, you are open to new ideas and aware of the value of monitoring and evaluation 
Please complete a Volunteer Sign-Up form. We shall email you a CRB form which by law you are to complete when volunteering to work with vulnerable adults.

Your enthusiasm for the response to and progress of our work will be much valued in Arts 4 Dementia's endeavour to provide greater understanding, to provide evidence and greater opportunities to inspire people coping with the stresses of dementia.
