Alzheimer's Australia - Volunteer in WA
- Like to spend time supporting a person with dementia?
- How about assisting Alzheimer’s Australia WA to raise much needed funds?
- Or talking to community members who have questions about dementia?
If that’s you – then we want to hear from you!
Alzheimer’s Australia WA relies on people just like you to undertake a wide range of voluntary roles within our organisation to help enhance the quality of life of people with dementia, add value to our services, and complement the work of our staff in their professional roles. Supported services to enable people living with dementia to continue or become involved in volunteering opportunities. What you can expect from us:
- Great training
- An excellent working environment
- Active mentoring and supervision
- We will meet your costs
- Keeping you in the loop.
What we will expect from you:
Our organisation takes your offer to volunteer as seriously as you do, and we expect that people who work with us will make a commitment that ensures we both benefit from the relationship.
Attending induction and training sessions
We expect regular volunteers to undertake two full days (9.00am to 4.30pm) of training as a minimum. One day is devoted to learning about the organisation and its work, and the second provides you with an insight into dementia.
For volunteers who wish to work directly in care and support roles with people with dementia, we would expect that you will attend our three-day nationally recognised training course in dementia care. All training is free and lunch is provided.
National Police Clearance
All staff and regular volunteers of Alzheimer’s Australia WA are required to have a National Police Clearance. We can check this for you at no charge, however if you require your own copy for other purposes (for example, you might volunteer elsewhere and most organisations now require this) they are available at Australia Post outlets while you wait. There is a cost involved and you will require 100 point proof of identity.
