Purple Angels are a small group of local volunteers who make a positive difference to the quality of life of people living with dementia and also their carers and families.  They are known as Purple Angels Ambassadors which is a global organisation.

As a dementia buddy you would be paired with a dementia sufferer on a one-to-one basis and can either spend time with the sufferer at home, take them out or bring them along to the fortnightly meeting held at the Greeno Centre in Shepperton.

Due to current restrictions we are not holding a fortnightly meeting but volunteers are encouraged to 'buddy' within government guidelines.

They are hoping to start up their dementia café at the end of June 2021.


What skills do I need?

Patience, empathy, understanding.

  • Health and Hospices
  • Befriending & Buddying
