Who are our volunteers?
We continually recruit enthusiastic volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds to join our team. We're lucky to have many very skilled people who have been with us several years.
Our great team provide sensitive one-to-one support to all our members to help them engage fully in all activities.
We have behind-the-scenes volunteers too, who look after our finances, legal issues, fundraising and communications. Without their commitment and input Chrysalis would not be able to function.
Our volunteers are a fantastic bunch of people. They devote their time to help people with ongoing memory problems or dementia and really enjoy what they do:
Some are continuing to use their professional skills and giving something back in retirement
Others are building up their work experience and getting useful skills to add to their CVs
We also welcome young people joining us for a few weeks to learn something interesting during their school holidays
Regular volunteers have statutory checks, induction, training and mentoring from the experienced care professionals on our board.
