Volunteer stories We have many different roles available for volunteers. If these stories of volunteers inspire you, please apply here. Volunteer Finance Intern "I saw an advert posted for Volunteer Finance Intern on do-it.org volunteering website. I decided to apply for the role because I wanted to make a difference in providing a service and helping people living with dementia. Also, it was relevant to my studies, as I was in my second year of accounting. First day, the staff at Dementia Concern were friendly, welcoming and supportive. In my position as a volunteer finance intern, I learnt valuable knowledge and work experience such as improving my communication, developing IT skills and assisting the finance department with different types of workload. The role has given me the opportunity to build confidence and gain practical experience." Reception and Admin Volunteer and Dementia Befriender "When I volunteered for reception at the office I learned a lot about the condition of Dementia, it's prevalence and the overwhelming need for such an organisation in the community. I felt the need to make some contribution to the running of the organisation. When I also volunteered for the befriending service, it took me outside my comfort zone. I had to go into a person with dementia's home, make a connection with them, and built up a relationship with them and their family. It was rewarding for me to make that connection, and also to realise that my client was looking forward to and enjoying my visits."
