Toll Gavel United Church - Beverley

Toll Gavel United Church is a very active church situated in the heart of the town centre of Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire. It is a Local Ecumenical Partnership between the Methodist and the United Reformed Church but within its growing membership there is a good cross section of denominations. We are a warm and welcoming church with a membership of around 230. There is something for everyone at Toll Gavel regardless of your age. You will see from our website that there is a variety of activities available alongside our regular Sunday worship. Toll Gavel is part of the Beverley Methodist Circuit which includes three other churches in the Beverley Area - Norwood, Walkington, and Tickton. All the churches offer Christian love and support wherever and whenever they come into contact with people. So feel free to browse our website and even visit our church. We would be delighted to meet you.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

We seek to be a dementia friendly church, providing help and support to our worshiping community as well as to all within the town of Beverley and its surrounding villages. We seek to ensure that the issues around Dementia are regularly discussed and are part of the on-going public debate.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

We need to ensure that we ourselves are sensitive to the needs of those with Dementia (and their families and carers) and to find the time to commit ourselves to regular and on-going information gathering with regards to dementia.
