Welcome to Tavistock Memory Café

MEMORY CAFE SUSPENDED

Sadly, due to the Coronavirus, we have had to suspend all Memory Cafe meetings. We will recommence when Government guidance allows, please check this site for notification or email Heather via our contact page.
Keep safe and well.

A brief introduction

Since we began in 2006, our aim has been to provide local based support for those who are either living with a dementia or who are their carers, friends or family.
At our sessions, we give people the opportunity to meet others who are in a similar situation, in a relaxed and social atmosphere – carers can access information, share concerns and experiences, while a range of stimulating activities is provided for their loved ones.

We are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, and affiliated to the Tavistock Dementia Alliance, and Devon Memory Café Consortium, with whom we hold the Quality Assurance Mark.

We were proud to have been shortlisted in the Clothworker's Company awards for Good Governance 2020; there were a large number of applications and sadly we did not win our category, but are very pleased to receive this certificate

New members

New members are greeted by one of our team of enthusiastic volunteers, who ensure that they are introduced to others and helped to settle in and feel at ease.
Everyone wears name badges which help with recognition and conversation.

We do make a small charge of £2.50 per person at each visit, in order to cover refreshments.
