Activity Coordinator – Dementia Care Services
With the number of people living with dementia currently estimated at 850,000 in the UK, which is expected to rise to 1 million by 2025, there is a pressing need to provide support to those individuals and their carers.

Alongside this specialist knowledge and practice, we have been running activities for carers of people with dementia for over 7 years.
Our dementia care services have long been oversubscribed and we are delighted to be in a position to expand this work in the London borough of Lambeth, offering Lambeth residents living with dementia and their carers the opportunity to engage in meaningful, creative activities alongside others similarly placed. Our work generates lasting friendships and lots of fun.
