Supporting our local community
We are passionate about providing the correct support when it comes to the world of dementia. We have continually committed to support our local community and are proud of the voluntary time we give to the community throughout the month.
We run and facilitate four community projects to date and these are:
The Sprowston Community Dementia Cafe
This free drop-in facility runs every 3rd Thursday of the month. It’s held at the Diamond Centre, School Lane, Norwich. The times are 10am-12noon and anyone can drop in for a cuppa and cake. We have a vast amount of information available and are able to signpost and give advice as and when necessary. We hold a separate carers session here.
The Thorpe St Andrew Dementia Cafe
Another free drop-in facility which runs on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. We’re based at Roxley Hall, Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich, 10am-12noon and again we have free refreshments. Hayley is able to signpost and offer support and advice. We also hold a separate carers session during this time.
