Founded and run by 3 experienced practitioners, and supported by wonderful volunteers, we are entirely a voluntary organisation, making no profit at all. We are all experienced in working with people living with dementia and their carers, as well as other mental health issues, physical issues, and other risk factors for social isolation. More information on our team can be found on our website.
When it is safe to do so, we will be running small activity groups to bring people together. The groups will be held in community buildings wherever there is need, but all venues will be fully assessed for suitability before use. We are accepting referrals into our service, and will be in touch when we can begin our groups, or if we are able to offer something via post or zoom which may be of interest. Your Dementia Advisor, Support Worker or Social Prescribing Link Worker can refer you, or you can self refer via our website.
Though limited in the current situation, we have been working through lockdown providing cards by post, and packs full of activities for people to do in their own home. We will very soon be offering a book club over Zoom.
We firmly believe that a cup of tea and an activity can bring people together in a relaxed, friendly, supportive environment. Activities will be based around group members’ preferences and will vary, but may include cooking, gardening, art and craft, reminiscence and singing or music. We also have seated exercise qualifications, walking group experience and dance experience for the more physically able.
