You can contact them for: 

  • Help to keep doing what you’ve always enjoyed doing
  • Dementia information, advice, support and guidance from a dementia-trained link worker
  • A listening ear
  • Friendly and fun dementia-specific and dementia-friendly groups in your area and across the city including:
      - Dementia and Memory Cafés
      - Walking groups
      - Sporting Memories
      - Music and singing sessions
      - Coffee mornings
      - Exercise and chairobics classes
      - Social dining and social cafés
      - Carer support groups
      - Allotment, gardening, farming and woodwork projects
      - Bowling
      - Pampering sessions
      - Afternoon teas

        and much more!

You’ll receive a warm welcome from the staff and volunteers at the organisations listed below.  They’re all Dementia Friends and have attended Dementia Stars training through Enrichment for the Elderly. 

And if you have any ideas about other activities you'd like to take part in, you can also talk to them.

It’s best to contact your local organisation using the map and lists provided.  However you are of course welcome to attend any of the groups listed here, depending on what interests you, and where it is easy for you to travel.  Most of the groups only charge a nominal fee, such as for refreshments.
