Our Goal

As a group we have a simple goal which is ..to provide information and guidance for carers and people living with Dementia in our local community..of Dereham and district.

dementia awareness in our community

We also want to contribute to the dementia awareness work in our community engaging with local business including shops, schools, churches and other volunteer groups.

Later this year we are launching an Information Centre at The Meeting Point which will be a source of further information and guidance. The Meeting Point also has leaflets, other sources of information and dates of events to support you further.
