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 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.
