To deliver a monthly Dementia Café – a safe space to talk, learn and meet new people for people with Dementia and their family, friends, and carers.
We are looking for a friendly, eager volunteer to run a monthly Dementia Café at Cathays Library. You would take responsibility for creating posters and promoting the café, and for running the monthly meetings. Training and support is provided from Library staff, as well as Dementia Friends training.
As your group grows, there is a chance to get creative, bringing in topics and activities that interest you and the other attendees, such as bingo, chair yoga, live music, quizzes, crafts, etc.
You would need to just commit 2 hours a month: one hour to deliver the café, and another hour for preparation and tidying up.
We are looking for someone friendly who is happy to chat with new people. You will need good organisation skills and time keeping to ensure the Dementia Café runs smoothly and consistently. You would need to be able to commit to a regular, monthly day and time.
Training and support is provided, but the volunteer will be expected to work towards delivering the Dementia Café independently, with minimal staff input.
