About the role
There are currently over 900,000 people living with dementia in the UK, and this is expected to increase to 1 million by 2025, and 1.4 million by 2040.
In response to this, Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service. When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them, giving the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions that people need. The unique dementia expertise and experience an Admiral Nurse brings is a lifeline – it helps everyone in the family to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.
In the past 18 months Dementia UK has developed a successful virtual event fundraising program that has provided a new income stream and access to new audiences. Dementia UK is expanding the virtual events team to ensure that we have the capacity to maintain and develop this new income stream.

You’ll be responsible for responding to enquiries, coordinating the fulfilment of fundraising materials, acknowledging donations, and providing an exceptional experience to our event supporters via phone, email and Facebook
