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.
Exciting new vacancies – Group Coordinator & volunteers, Sheffield
In response to the inadequate support for people with young onset dementia in most areas of the UK, YoungDementia UK is developing a programme of national initiatives including piloting local service opportunities. There are approximately 150 younger people living in Sheffield with dementia and 100s more family members providing support.
We are currently recruiting a part-time Group Coordinator to work for us 8 hours a month who will develop, market and coordinate a peer support group for people living with young onset dementia and their family members in Sheffield. The group will offer opportunities for people to meet, share experiences and socialise.
Applicants should have prior experience in developing and facilitating groups as well as excellent organisational and communication skills.
Deadline for applications is 16 October 2018. Please note we do not accept CVs.
Completed applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
