Volunteer on a local project
Dementia Friendly Communities are entirely reliant on the dedication and commitment of volunteers. If you are interested in helping any of the Dementia Friendly communities listed below, please visit each page to see what is currently organised in each area.
Brecon, Knighton, Newtown, Welshpool and Ystradgynlais are all officially recognised as working towards becoming a Dementia Friendly Community. Communities in Powys that are not officially recognised, but are active in the process of becoming dementia friendly are Hay on Wye, Presteigne, Crickhowell, Llandrindod Wells, Rhayader, Montgomery and Guilsfield. All of these places need more members of their communities to get involved and of course there will be other towns and villages that would like to take on the challenge of becoming Dementia Friendly.
If you are interested in making your own community Dementia Friendly, or have any ideas around volunteering that you would like to pass on to us, please contact Sam Bolam, the Dementia Friends Community Development Officer for South Powys – get in touch here.
