Activity and Volunteer Assistant

About me

Helen joined Dementia Jersey in October 2022 initially as a group leader for the Meeting Place Project, she has now increased her involvement by becoming Activities and Volunteer Assistant.

A local by default, having grown up in the island Helen followed the “Jersey” career path into the local finance industry, until she re-trained as a Primary school teacher. After spending a number of, very happy and busy, years teaching in the Midlands, she returned to the island and moved into the 3rd sector working at Communicare, St Brelade running the café and kitchen. A chance conversation led to her involvement with Dementia Jersey.

What I Love about my job

The variety of my role(s) means I get to use a wide range of “skills” whilst meeting lots of interesting and fantastic people and doing different things. Everyday is different and I feel privileged to be working with such a dedicated and positive team.
