Become an massage therapist

Provide a short sports massage to Dementia UK participants at our charity village location.

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

We need volunteers work on weekends between 2.5 – 5 hours, with locations in London, Brighton, Newcastle, Birmingham and Cardiff.

Dementia UK have 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.

Volunteering is a wonderful thing to do and benefits my wellbeing, as well as making a huge difference to so many others.

Manny Kang, Dementia UK Volunteer Ambassador
