NHS Dementia Carers Support Service – CPFT

Back to Activities

Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation's Dementia Carers' Support Service (DCSS) is small team of volunteers supporting the carers of people living with dementia.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • it’s a chance to give back by helping and supporting others;
  • you’ll meet new people;
  • you can share your skills and learn new ones.

Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust’s (CPFT) Dementia Carers’ Support Service volunteers are trained, supported and supervised by experienced, professional CPFT staff to offer compassionate listening, signposting and support.

What to expect?

Nearly all of us know someone with dementia.

Many of us find ourselves caring for a parent, partner or family member who has dementia. Some of us who have been through this experience volunteer to help other carers along their journey. Starting from as little as an hour a week, or as much time as you can give, you really can make a difference in many ways.

Whether you want to develop new skills or give something back to your local community, you can make a real difference to dementia carers’ lives.
