If you facilitate and/or Volunteer at a support group in the area, then this free network event including refreshments is for you!

Thursday 23rd May

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

The Warwick District Support for Dementia 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.
