Groups & Activities

If people living with dementia are to enjoy the best possible quality of life then person-centred meaningful activities should be available both where they live and in the wider community.

All of the services which we run are free of charge to all who use them with the exception of Saturday Club which costs £6 per day to cover transport and catering costs. 

These are our activities, further details of which are set out elsewhere on this website:-
