Lyppard Hub (formerly Lyppard Grange Community Centre) is a charitable organisation working right in the heart of our community since 1993. We offer a wide range of activities and services to those locally and beyond and are home to over 60 different user groups throughout the week, from baby groups to activities for over 50s. Our mission statement is: ‘We will be a focal point for our community, developing, implementing and enabling initiatives which will embrace and enrich the needs of our community.’

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?

Lyppard Hub provide a valued service as the community centre for the local community - as such we want people living with dementia to feel welcome and at home in the centre and able to access support and services through us.  We have set up a new coffee morning style support group for people living with dementia and their carers, family and friends, so that people living with dementia can feel part of their local community, have a sense of belonging, meet people in a similar situation to themselves and find support locally, as well as being a helpful support for carers and family members.

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

The centre is open to the whole community and is a busy place with many people coming in throughout the week - not all of these people will have understanding of dementia so our main challenge is ensuring that people living with dementia feel welcome in the wider community not just with particular staff and volunteers.
