Volunteer your massage skills

If you are a qualified massage therapist, consider helping at our post race venues.

    Every year, hundreds of runners take part in challenge events for Dementia UK. One of the benefits of joining #TeamDementiaUK is the offer of a post-race sports massage. We appreciate you considering volunteering your time and expertise to make this possible.

    We need volunteers to work on weekends between 2 – 5 hours, with locations in London, Brighton, Newcastle, Birmingham and Cardiff.

    Dementia UK has a dedicated events team that manage our third-party events. We recruit and support those who have chosen to take on a physical challenge to support Dementia UK.

    As a volunteer massage therapist, you will help support our runners in their race efforts. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet some of our amazing participants and provides you with the experience of offering massage therapy at a large-scale organised event.

    Please provide a copy of your qualification certificate and public liability insurance; and inform us of your capacity, e.g. how many event finishers you will be able to offer a massage to. You will need to provide your own equipment.
