Please note that some of the features of Talking Point have changed since our Help videos were produced. The videos still contain lots of useful information about using and finding your way around Talking Point, however.
The Talking Point team is made up of Alzheimerís Society staff and volunteers.
Volunteers are key to the smooth running of Talking Point: we couldnít run the service without our dedicated teams of Hosts and Moderators.
All Talking Pointís volunteers have personal experience of dementia.
Our Hosts volunteer alongside the Talking Pointís moderating team. They help us provide extra support to the forum, and enable us to provide a better, and more responsive service.

Talking Point also has three full-time members of staff, called Administrators.
Administrators are Alzheimerís Society staff, whose role it is to ensure that Talking Point is running safely and smoothly. Administrators provide support to forum members, volunteer hosts and volunteer moderators, and enforce forum rules when necessary.
