In Our Day Project at Walkley Library

This new intergenerational dementia project at Walkley Library are looking for student volunteers to work with people with dementia in Sheffield. This role will involve collecting their stories and reminiscences, which will result in multi-media content for our website and also a book.

The In Our Day project is just starting off, and is funded by the Dementia Innovation Fund from Sheffield City Council. 

The volunteers will be trained in oral history skills, running reminiscence workshops and being dementia-friendly. Together, we will interview older people with dementia and their carers about their shared experiences, in a series of workshops and one-to-one sessions.

To find out more information about this role and similar opportunities, book an informal chat appointment with a member of the Volunteering team.
