Bringing individuals back into the heart of the community

We are a social mission led company, committed to placing the individual living with dementia back at the heart of the community. We believe that at all stages of the disease you should be able to maintain social connections, maintain self-esteem and continue to live positively.

We are built on the Dutch meeting centre model and our specialist knowledge to use our activity centres to create a community, and to link with our local community to build a place that values and encourages individuals regardless of their disability.
