Description of the role:

This is a fabulous role for anyone who would like to support people with dementia to continue to take part in hobbies and activities. Our hub clubs run on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at our converted chapel in a village just outside Ripon - close to Knaresborough and Boroughbridge. The group take part in various activities including gardening, crafts, cake decorating, walking and life story work. The sessions are run by a member of Dementia Forward staff with the assistance of volunteers on a rota basis. There is no need to do every week, any time you can spare would be brilliant.
