We will have a data base of all organisations that we can refer people to 

We will promote other services within our hub and the greater community, with leaflets , posters and Age concerns newsletter

We will offer our premises on a pre arranged time schedule to other charities that are supporting people living with dementia as a venue to provide that support eg dementia surgeries 

We would like to start a friendship befriending group once a week 

We will make our hub dementia friendly with the appropriate signage
