Every penny you donate goes directly to support people living with dementia and their loved ones – helping to reduce loneliness and isolation and connecting families to much needed practical and emotional support.

Donate to the Memory Cafe

It costs approximately £120 to run each memory cafe session for around 50 people living with dementia and their carers.  These funds come from  Donations, Grants and Fundraising.

Donate to the Admiral Nurse

We continually fundraise for the vital work of the Admiral Nurse for the Sid Valley.  To provide this very specialist one-to-one support for families, it costs approximately £50,000 per year.  We have been humbled by how the community has rallied to achieve our initial target of three years of funding, but it is paramount to maintain momentum so we don’t lose this vital and unique service.
