Terry Byrne

Skye Harvey Unsung Heroes – Individual

Organisation:

Alzheimers WA

Terry has been volunteering at Mary Chester shed at Alzheimer’s WA for the past 5 years.
Terry has a wonderful natural approach when supported people living with dementia and has created an environment where people can feel relaxed, valued and just enjoy each other’s company.
With Terry’s support people recently diagnosed with dementia can transition from Community Sheds to Alzheimers WA supported shed and maintain their connection with others whilst doing the work they love.
All the items that are made in the shed are sold to raise funds that are used for more materials and equipment
Terry has support so many during his time volunteering and it is always a pleasure to visit the shed to experience genuine mate ship and laughter.

It is a honor to recommend Terry for this award.
