The Stable

The Stable was born from an idea which emerged when Newmarket United Reformed Church united with Newmarket Methodist Church in 1994. This enabled the premises to be converted into a drop-in coffee bar, games room, community hall and offices. Situated on the High Street in Newmarket (opposite Boots) The Stable officially opened its doors in April 1996 and is centrally placed for people to call in. Voluntary helpers work alongside staff. We offer a venue in the middle of town for lots of organisations, with a warm friendly welcome for those who may be vulnerable or disadvantaged. A selection of it's offerings are: • A place where everyone in our community can feel included • A meeting place where people can relax and enjoy a cup of coffee, tea, snack or light home cooked lunch, either on their own or with friends • A facility for teenagers to socialise in the non-alcoholic bar and games room within a safe environment.

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 would seek to promote awareness of dementia issues to our staff and volunteers so that those living with dementia  and their carers feel comfortable and at ease. We would wish to review what we do on a regular basis and endeavour to improve our facilities and our awareness of dementia issues.   We would seek to resolve specific problems that may occur with individuals from time to time. 

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

None - part of our usual services.
