    Forget-Me-Not Club has been supported by many volunteers over the years. Sadly, the pandemic had a huge impact on all charities, with volunteering put on hold.

    As restrictions began to ease, it was still difficult for our charity to reintroduce volunteers, specifically due to the vulnerable nature of many of our members. However, we would love to welcome our volunteers back and add some new faces to the team too.

    Opportunities to help with events, coffee mornings, social media, collection can handovers, delivering leaflets and so much more.

    If you would be interested in helping, even on an ad-hoc basis, we would love to hear from you...


    We are pleased to work with schools across Aberdeen City & Shire and always enjoy the opportunity to visit.

    The prevalence of dementia is growing rapidly and it is anticipated that 1 in 3 of our children will know someone affected by a dementia diagnosis.

    This is why we believe that by working with young people now, we can help to build more dementia friendly communities and raise awareness of the help available.

    We would love to continue to expand our work in schools and work with your pupils on a Class or Whole School Learning project.

    Please get in touch if this is of interest and we can arrange an informal chat to discuss options.

    Different types of support


    In the past, we were fortunate to welcome local nursery school children to our Resource Centre.

    The children would join us for an hour or so and it was always fantastic to see the interactions between both children and our members.

    We hope to be able to welcome our youngest Forget-Me-Not Friends again soon. Please get in touch if you would like to explore the possibility of visiting our members. Or perhaps our members and some of our team can visit you? Helping the children in the school garden, crafting or even having fun with loose parts play - many options to explore.

    YPI is the biggest independent initiative being delivered in Scottish education.

    Each school is responsible for directing a grant of £3000 to a local charity championed by its students through a unique programme of teamwork, research, and competition."

    Our local community show incredible support towards our wee charity with the big heart, with many people taking part in fundraising events and joining our fundraising campaigns. 

    Our Firewalk fundraiser is a perfect example of a recent community fundraiser, as those who took part raised over a combined total of £11,000.    

    Communities also help by organising their own fundraising events - a fantastic example being the Coast2Coast for the FMNC challenge, which raised over £15,000, despite being postponed several times and eventually undertaken between lockdowns.

    Fundraising in our communities doesn't just rely on others, in fact, our team are actively involved in the community. We welcome invitations to speak at group meetings and attending local events to help raise awareness of our Forget-Me-Not Club.

    If your group is interested in finding out more, please get in touch.
