Applications Closed 16 October 2018 – Exciting new part time and voluntary vacancies from Young Dementia UK in Sheffield

I live in Sheffield reader and because I am under 65 there has been no post diagnosis support, services assessments or rehabilitation, even over 65 the support is limited.

It is so important to support to support people and their family from the point of diagnosis.

These vacancies provide an exciting opportunity to make a difference.
