We are extremely grateful to Lyan Packaging for supporting our Memory Arts Café. Thanks to their generous support we've been able to provide essential arts and craft supplies that need replenishing regularly!
Our Memory Arts Café is a safe space for those suffering from memory loss to enjoy the arts with friends and family, led by our Dementia Friendly trained staff and volunteers.
Over the last year we have seen the Memory Café grow from an average of 15 members to now an average of 40. Each month the Café focuses on a different theme that is explored through activities including poetry, music, arts and crafts, quizzes and puzzles. We collaborate with local artists and volunteers to bring live music and entertainment to make each session new and exciting. For many, the memory café will be one of the few times they leave the house. Participants are given the opportunity to find a sense of community with other people who know what they’re going through.
Through our youth and community projects we support many people and create positive experiences and memories that will last forever.
