Kent’s ‘Dementia’ Volunteer Award

A recognition award for the outstanding volunteers we have in Kent working with people with dementia. Its open to any of our outstanding Kent residents who volunteer their time in order to enhance the lives of people living with dementia.

I would like to say however, that over the past two years while I have been in this role I have come across tons of volunteers whom I know could easily have fitted this award. I will not name you all as I do know that many of you are quite shy.

But All those who volunteer across Kent, aiming to help those living with dementia

Thank you, you really are all super stars

 

Kent’s Dementia Friendly Awards have been sponsored by businesses across Kent who are members of our Local Dementia Action Alliances and Dementia Friendly Communities
