Volunteer with us ...

Learn new skills!  Meet new people! Support local projects for local people!

We rely on our valued and committed volunteers to help us. We offer a range of volunteering opportunities including;  

Helping with PramaLIFE activities, clubs and groups.  We can always use a willing pair of hands... whether that's to make a cuppa, become a volunteer driver for our mini-bus service or help run an activity at one of our many PramaLIFE clubs.

If you only have an hour or so a week you can still make a huge difference, we need volunteer befrienders for people who have asked for this support to combat loneliness and isolation. 

Or join our award winning team of volunteers supporting our six charity shops.  Our shops in Kinson, West Moors, Tuckton, Ashley Cross, Parkstone, Poole High Street and Ringwood, all raising valuable funds to support our PramaLIFE clubs and groups.   

There's lots on offer, please just give us a call (01202 207300) or see specific vacancies below.  Training is available for volunteer roles and DBS checks may be made.

New creative project to support people living with dementia

People living with dementia and their close family members are invited to join a new free art and reminiscence project in Poole.

Mementos is a new group organised by Dorset charity Prama and Borough of Poole Arts Service and is open to people living with dementia and their family carers. A team of professional artists will work with the group and support them to share memories and use textiles, fabrics and photos to create beautiful and personal mementos.

Katrina Keeling from Prama said: “Caring for someone with memory loss can be stressful at times and it is so important to find activities you can enjoy together. The Mementos group is a chance to enjoy a relaxing and rewarding activity together, to learn new skills and make friends.”

Anna Shiels, Arts Programme Manager, Borough of Poole Arts Service, said: “Working with textiles can be really beneficial for people with dementia as it is such a tactile experience. The sessions will be relaxed and informal so everyone can work at their own pace and focus on what people enjoy and can achieve together.”

Mementos is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and is free to take part for people with dementia and their family carers. The group will meet on Thursday mornings at Cynthia Close in Poole. To book your place, or to find out more about taking part in the Mementos project, either as a participant or as a volunteer, please contact Anna Shiels on 01202 633971 or email
