The Mary Ward Centre

About Mary Ward Centre The Mary Ward Centre is London’s Adult Education College with a difference. Our central London location makes it easily accessible, and students will enjoy the experience of working in a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian building in the calm surroundings of Queen Square. Why choose the Mary Ward Centre? Courses run in the daytime, evening or weekend, meaning you can fit your learning around the rest of your life. The Mary Ward Centre has developed a reputation as the friendly place to learn – this is because as well as getting first rate teaching, students also receive the support and encouragement they need to help them get the most from their learning. Some of our courses, including some dance movement classes as well as our counselling training, take place at our other site near Holborn station – 10 Great Turnstile, WC1V 7JU. All classrooms are equipped with excellent facilities, technology and tools for each course. Students will be advised if they need to bring any additional materials. What can you do here? Courses are taught at all levels, from introductory to advanced, by experienced well-qualified tutors. From Art to Zumba, Archaeology to Ukulele, Computing and Business to Psychology and Counselling, there is plenty of choice to meet your interests. Many courses lead to a certificate so you can add to your qualifications but there is also lots of opportunity to pursue study purely for the pleasure of learning.

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?

As part of our commitment to being friendly and accessible to all sections of the community, we will ensure that we are doing all we can to welcome and be sensitive to the needs of people with dementia, their carers, families and friends.

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

We do not foresee any significant barriers to delivering our actions.
