About the Volunteer Opportunity

Calling all Knitters and Crocheters……

‘Twiddle muffs’ are a knitted or crocheted band with items attached that patients living with the advanced stages of dementia can twiddle in their hands. People with dementia often find fiddling with material a helpful way to relieve feelings of anxiety.

The Volunteer Centre will link in with local Dementia units and charities in the Mid Ulster area to donate these when our offices open again.

About the Organisation

The Centre was established in June 2000 and changed its name to Mid Ulster Volunteer Centre in January 2017. It provides support and co-ordination to volunteering in the Mid-Ulster area. Linking ‘those who need help’ and ‘those who want to help’
