SummaryNature connection, wildlife conservation, arts, creative activites, for people living with dementia
Detailed description

We are looking for one or more volunteers to support our work in delivering outdoor nature and wildlife activities for people living with dementia. Experience in working in nature conservation. Learning about nature, and sharing knowledge. Supporting and inspiring people to access nature and wildlife who might face barriers in doing so. Linking with conservation efforts and project across the Frome area. Socialising, meeting new people. Getting active outdoors. Experience in delivering a mix of activities from arts and crafts to practical conservation. Volunteers will have scope for creating and delivering their own activities with support from the Project Officer. Looking for regular support on weekly activities. Currently these take place on a Tuesday & Wednesday 11-2. We will run more as we get more interest, as groups are limited to 6 people currently. There is a lot of interest locally so one or more volunteers would be really helpful. This could even lead to volunteers running sessions independently in future to enable us to help more individuals get active outdoors.

What we will provide to volunteers💸 Reimbursement of costs🤝 Extra support

About Froglife
Green Pathways for Life aims to enhance the lives of people living with dementia, using conservation and wildlife activities to boost confidence, transferable skills and emotional, social and physical wellbeing. The project also aims to deliver real benefits to local green spaces and habitats, collaborating with local organisations to link in with nature conservation activities across the Frome area.

The project focus is on engaging with people with dementia living at home, with mild to moderate dementia or memory loss symptoms. We also encourage anyone supporting these individuals to attend our sessions, to enable people with dementia to attend our activity sessions safely, and with an additional aim to support the wellbeing of informal care givers.
As lockdown eases and group sessions are once again possible, we are looking at restarting our outdoor sessions. We have guidelines and strict safety procedures in place to keep our staff, volunteers and participants safe.
Re-establishing the confidence of individuals in returning to outdoor group activities is a challenge during this time, but it is also highly important. The support of a willing volunteer activity assistant would be fantastic.
