Places to go

There are a lot of spaces in your local community which are free to access to help you feel connected to your community and the city. 

The complex needs day service supports people who live with dementia and have complex needs, including support with personal care.  Each centre offers a safe space designed to be friendly and flexible and offer group activates and one to one support. Through the early support scheme you are able to experience this service whilst you are waiting on a social worker assessment and with no obligation to continue if its not for you.

Neighbourhood network scheme

Neighbourhood Networks are a collection of community-based charitable organisations providing opportunities and support to their local areas. In general, they engage with people aged 60 and over, offering a range of activities, including social and support, sports and fitness classes and one-to-one support. The opportunities on offer can vary from area to area and each scheme is focused on supporting people in their local area so it is important to contact the right service.
