About me

Wendy joined JAA in September 2018. Her focus is working within the community running workshops, delivering talks or training sessions to raise awareness of dementia and the work of JAA.

Her awareness talks have taken her into a number of financial institutions, retail and utility companies as well as clubs, associations and meeting groups such as the WI.

Wendy is also a Dementia Friends Champion and delivers the Dementia Friends Information Sessions to a wide range of audiences.

What I Love about my job

JAA is 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 a more dementia friendly island. I find it so rewarding being out in the community meeting so many people who are interested in finding out more about dementia.
