Who we are

Keynsham and Saltford Dementia Action Alliance is a small charity which provides regular events to those with dementia and their support along with working with business to improve their facilities, approach and staff for those with dementia.


The role

The potential areas you could help out are as follows:

Music for the mind volunteer

We have been running the sessions for many years and have an existing team of volunteers who would support you in a role that suits your interests.

The main responsibility would be to assist with the running of sessions which can include more manual tasks such as setting up tables or socialising with our dementia friends and their carers, preparing drinks, giving out song books and/or helping out in the car park.

You would be present at the sessions which are on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month, it would not need to be every week and there is flexibility over when you would attend.

Community Engagement volunteer

This would be a fantastic opportunity for someone enthusiastic about their local community.

It would suit someone who is engaging, sociable and keen to combine skills in marketing, relationship/business development. Preferably you will already have links to Keynsham and/or Saltford with some knowledge/experience of dementia or arekeen to know more.

You would be the main point of contact for local business and responsible for developing links with the charity and how both can support each other. This can include making businesses aware of our services for site visits and how they can be adapted to be more dementia friendly, options for staff training and knowledge of dementia, ideas for fundraising/sponsorship along with any other good ideas you have.

Treasurer

This role as a volunteer would have flexibility to contribute as much as you like. The main responsibilities would be recording income and expenditure for the charity, managing finances in conjunction with the trustees, payment of invoices.

As a small charity it would only require a couple of hours a month but previous volunteers have enjoyed being part of a group and gone on to contribute to wider development.

Experience or background in accountancy or similar would be useful but not essential as we would support you in getting up and running.

Trustee

As a trustee you will have input into how the charity develops, areas to improve and making a difference to the communities of Keynsham and Saltford and those with dementia. You should have an interest in promoting greater inclusion and recognition of dementia, from those with the condition to their family, carers and wider support.
