Every three minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with dementia, and it is now the leading cause of death. There are currently over 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, and this is expected to increase to 1.1 million by 2025, and 2 million by 2050.
Dementia UK helps families cope by giving them a lifeline to living more positively day-to-day through the unique, specialist one-to-one support of our specialist Admiral Nurses. When things get challenging or difficult, our nurses work alongside people with dementia and their families, giving them the expert guidance and practical solutions that they need, which can be hard to find elsewhere. Dementia UK Admiral Nurses help people to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.
Our aim is to ensure that there is an Admiral Nurse available for every family that needs one.
About the Supporter Care Officer Role
Dementia UK has experienced exciting and unprecedented growth over the past four years, more than doubling income to £6.9 million.
We have seen significant growth in income and have ambitious plans to maintain this growth; so we can significantly increase the number of Admiral Nurses, and the specialist support they provide.
This role will involve working as a key member of a busy Supporter Care team, helping to maintain and drive fundraising growth across a number of income streams. You will achieve this by ensuring the best possible supporter experience for all of our donors, and by proactively improving processes and ways of working.
