New Survey: The role of volunteers in supporting people living with dementia

Does your organisation:
  • Involve volunteers?
  • Have a role in supporting those living with dementia, their family, or their friends? 
If so, University of Stirling needs your help!
Giving 10-15 minutes of your time will help contribute to the production of guidance/tools that better supports organisations to develop volunteering in connection with those living with dementia, their friends, and their families.
The survey wishes to capture volunteering activity in the widest sense (i.e. unpaid activity where someone gives their time to help an organisation or an individual to whom they are not related) and this survey should be completed by those who have the most central role in supporting volunteers in your organisation.
We are a team of researchers based at the University of Stirling, researching the role of volunteers in supporting people living with dementia and would like to emphasise that your responses will be confidential and your organisation would not be identified in any outputs from this research. We have included some additional information about this project at the end of this survey and please do contact us via e-mail ( if you have any questions.
