A hello from our community engagement officer

 

 

Yael Shotts is our charity’s Community Engagement Officer.

As part of our communications and marketing team, she works to raise the profile of our charity, endeavouring to reach people who don’t know about us yet, all over the UK. By visiting hospitals, carers’ hubs, community groups, and any businesses interested in hearing more about our services.

She will be representing Dementia Carers Count at various events around the UK, answering questions about how we can help family and friends looking after someone with dementia, explaining how employers can support those looking after someone with dementia, giving presentations about our work and managing our stand at events and shows.

Yael regularly meets with our Ambassador team, keeping them in the loop and up-to-date on any of our new services – sharing information but also listening to their stories and new ideas. She’s the person to ask if you would like to become an Ambassador – we don’t need much time from you, and everyone can help in different ways; just sharing our leaflets is a huge help.

She also works with our Carers Advisory Panel (CAP), convening its meetings and working with the group on how we can expand our reach and develop our services.

As our plans develop for our own Dementia Carers Centre in the Midlands, Yael will be spreading the word and building relationships with communities in the surrounding area.
