Warwick District Support for Dementia Network

on Thursday 23rd May, 2019 at 1:00pm
If you facilitate and/or Volunteer at a support group in the area, then this free network event including refreshments is for you!

With ever increasing numbers of adults in the UK living with a dementia diagnosis, Warwick District’s and Environs Dementia Support Groups provide a great resource for them, their carers and families.

The Warwick District and Environs Dementia Support Network is keen to offer the people behind these support groups – the leaders, volunteers and activity facilitators the chance to get together again to develop skills, share experience and good practice, identify shared challenges, and importantly, to recognise the great and vital work you all contribute within our communities.

We will be holding this free event at St Michaels Church Centre Budbrooke on Thursday, 23rd May 2019, from 1.00pm to 3.00pm and would like to invite all those involved in delivering sessions to please come and participate.
