Thanks to the contribution of our valuable volunteer team, we run a music group for people who have dementia. We are looking for a music facilitator.
The music facilitator will facilitate the music programme with support from music group volunteers. The facilitator organises content for each session, which may include sing-alongs and video clips run through the data projector along with co-hosting zoom sessions.
Volunteers support our clients as they participate in music group activities - these include playing musical instruments, moving to music and singing along with the music facilitator. You will encourage participants and get alongside them - engaging at a level that matches their ability.
By participating in this volunteering opportunity, you are helping achieve the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goal(s):
Goal 3 – Good Health & Well-Being

We are looking for someone reliable who enjoys working with people, is patient, a good listener, and has a minimum of good conversational English.
You need to be computer literate and interested in music. In order to do this role well, you are required to complete training in Dementia care.
