Become an activity buddy for someone with dementia with Swale Community Leisure

Do you know someone with dementia, or do you just want to give something back to your local community?

If you know someone, or are caring for someone with dementia, we can support you both in being physically active. If you want to get involved in supporting someone living with dementia, we can help you get started.

Our new volunteering scheme gets you paired up with a suitable partner who needs some company in the gym, pool or an exercise class. You’ll even get free leisure time for every hour you give.

How it works

Already know someone?
Your volunteer co-ordinator will sign you up and you can start banking your time as soon as you start bringing the person you are caring for to sessions.

Want to volunteer and get paired up?
Your volunteer co-ordinator will put you in touch with a local organisation, who will pair you up with someone that needs a physical activity buddy. You decide how much time you can give, and they will get you signed up. 

Time back to you

We believe your support deserves some time back to look after yourself and stay active. Being an activity buddy earns you some me time for FREE! For every session you volunteer, you’ll get a session back! Choose a gym session, swim or an exercise class.

If you’re already a member of the leisure centre, you can gift your banked sessions to a friend or family member.

Please give us a call on 01795 420 420
and speak to our volunteer co-ordinator about registering today!
