An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Dementia Friendly Communities Coordinator to join our team. This role will support and further develop Dementia Friendly Communities across the Cardiff and the Vale area for the benefit of people affected by dementia and their carers.

The coordinator will provide support to facilitate partnership working and joint approaches between Dementia Friendly groups, supportive individuals, businesses and organisations. The support provided will enable individuals and organisations to recognise the needs of people with dementia and take action towards making their communities dementia friendly, where people affected by dementia feel understood, respected, included, and are supported to live well.

Previous experience of service delivery and coordination as well as experience of delivering community development initiatives is essential for this role.

The post holder will need a degree or evidence of relevant work experience as well as being trained as an Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Champion (or willing to complete this training on appointment). Although you will be home based you will need to be mobile across the area, therefore a valid driving licence and own car are essential.
