Volunteer Coordinator 

Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia charity. We provide information and support, improve care, fund research, and create lasting change for people affected by dementia. 

At Alzheimer’s Society, we are inspired by many things – from the resilience of people and families affected by dementia to the generosity of the public in supporting our research, fundraising and our growing range of dementia support services. But nothing inspires us more than the thousands of volunteers who make our work possible. They not only account for the majority of our workforce; they bring with them a level of commitment and expertise that is successfully driving our mission to create a world without dementia. 

It’s a particularly exciting time at Alzheimer’s Society. As the UK’s leading dementia support and research charity, we are two years into delivering an ambitious five year strategy and lots of work is underway to invest in and make improvements to our volunteering offer.
