Dementia Friends Champions are trained volunteers who encourage others to learn a little bit about dementia. Champions run Dementia Friends Information Sessions in their community and inspire others to help those living with dementia live well.

You can become a Dementia Friends Champion by attending a Champions Induction. Usually this takes place during the day but we are running our first evening inductions, especially planned for those who may not be available during the day. It will take place over two consecutive Wednesday evenings – Wed 11th July and Wed 18th July, from 5.45pm to 8.30pm – at Alzheimer’s Society office, Suite 4, Branksome Park House, Branksome Business Park, Bourne Valley Road, POOLE, BH12 1ED. You would need to attend both sessions to become a Champion.

At the induction you’ll see a Dementia Friends Information Session delivered by a Dementia Friends Officer and then learn how to deliver the Session yourself, with the chance to discuss the activities and our key messages, before taking part in a practice presentation. Teas and coffees will be served (and perhaps some cakes!)
