A brief introduction
We started in 2006 with just six founder members, with the aim of providing local support for those living with dementia and also for their carers; since that time we have progressed from being a small charity to becoming a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation with around fifty members.
We provide a fortnightly social occasion in a relaxed atmosphere where there is no stigma, and offer a carers support group whilst those living with dementia enjoy a range of activities.
Our Memory Cafe is a member of the the Tavistock Dementia Action Alliance and the Devon Memory Cafe Consortium.
Where do we meet?
We meet fortnightly at…
The Anchorage Centre
From 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
New members can be sure of a friendly welcome, with a short explanation given by either the Chairperson or the Secretary of what to expect from the Cafe and an introduction to others in the group to make the first visit less intimidating.
We do have a small fee of £1.50 per person per attendance to cover cost of refreshments, etc.
