1. Action Plan

As an independent, Community Interest Company (CIC) we operate on a not for profit basis but we do need to raise enough money to cover all of our running costs.

We aim to be a safe and genuinely inclusive space that tackles loneliness, inspires creativity and improves emotional, physical and mental wellbeing.

    We will actively support our local dementia friendly community group by reading minutes and support their actions where possible.
