Being a carer can be a lonely place at times and you question your value. Becoming a Volunteer Facebook Champion was a real boost to my confidence and put me in a much better place caring for my wife. What I love about the role is the ability to have dialogue and share my journey with others in a similar position. Helping others is a recipe for happiness, and it’s a great chance to be part of a team that appreciates and understands what you’re going through.
Steve, Volunteer Facebook Champion
Becoming a Volunteer Facebook Champion is brilliant and worthwhile! I would recommend it to anyone. As a student it’s the best way to volunteer alongside your studies without losing time. It teaches you time management skills and has helped me become a better student. I appreciate the communities and support groups that form and love helping them flourish into something lovely.
Hannah, Volunteer Facebook Champion

We ask that you commit to a minimum of two hours per week for two months. After this time, we hope that you will continue to volunteer as a Facebook Champion – we have lots of amazing Virtual Facebook Challenges planned over the next year and would love your support.
As this role is virtual you can make it fit around your life, volunteering at a time convenient to you – whether that be weekdays, evenings or weekends.

Our Volunteer Facebook Champions have a direct impact on how much money is raised through our Virtual Facebook Challenges. Their support and encouragement are invaluable, ensuring that each participant feels appreciated and inspired to raise vital sponsorship to support families facing dementia.
