What I Love about my job

Dementia Jersey a such worthwhile charity and I am proud to be part of the team helping to raise awareness and improve understanding of dementia throughout Jersey, thereby making Jersey more dementia friendly island.  I find it so rewarding meeting so many people who are interested in finding out more about dementia especially those who are wishing to make their businesses more dementia friendly.  While my new roles is predominately office based, I will still be able to support the team who are in the community meeting members of the public and my previous experience in the Education role has given me vital experience which I can pass on to others within the Dementia Jersey team.
