Looking for a way to get involved with the community and help those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias? Then volunteering at AlzSWP is for you!

Volunteer Collective

Our London & Middlesex location has a unique Volunteer Engagement program called the Volunteer Collective. This program is a volunteer sharing program that shares diverse dementia trained volunteers with other Alzheimer Societies and community partners.

The benefits of the Collective:

  • Creating capacity within the system of care and support – no one living with dementia goes unsupported
  • Improving our ability to meet the diverse needs of our clients (language and culture) in a variety of communities
  • Sharing of dementia trained volunteers with partnering societies and organizations
  • Creating a more Dementia Friendly Community
