Because we are a local charity every penny that is donated to us stays in Jersey to help and support local people with dementia and their families.
We do not have a large management/line manager structure and we have no expensive 'executives'. All our Trustees and volunteers are unpaid and we are able to keep our overheads low thanks to the generosity of people like the Constable of St Helier, from whom we rent our office, and the Constable of St Saviour who gives us free use of the Parish Hall for our weekly Musical Memories sessions.
We rely heavily on public donations to continue with and expand our services, which we provide free of charge, and the people of Jersey have shown their generosity in many ways and have our heartfelt thanks.
Please consider sending us a donation so that we may continue with our work. There are about 1,000 people in Jersey who have been diagnosed with dementia and there are probably many more who have not sought a diagnosis. Within the next few years the number of people with dementia will increase dramatically and more services and community support will be needed.
Dementia touches many people's lives and on behalf of all those people whose lives you may touch, but who cannot find the words to say it personally, we give their warmest thanks.
