Jewels Bird, Memory Navigation volunteer, Carers in Bedfordshire

"I first got involved to keep my skills up as my background is in help and advice. I also find it’s good for my own emotional wellbeing. I get a buzz from putting the pieces of the jigsaw together for people – unless someone tells you what is out there, it can be hard to find the right advice and support"
