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.
