Know Dementia helps make a real difference to the lives of people with a dementia (PWD) and their carers by offering: 1-1 support, Memory Moments Cafés, well-being activities and also raising awareness in the community. We name our activities ‘Moments’ because we believe that people do not always live well with dementia, rather they have precious Moments which can be captured and cherished. We welcome anyone with memory concerns, with the majority of attendees being people living with dementia.
The overall purpose of the charity is to provide support to those diagnosed with a dementia and their families both in their own home and in the community. We are dedicated to ensuring that families affected by dementia have the best opportunity to continue to live as well as they are able. By providing support and by advancing the education of the public of the different types of dementia and its impact on people, we aim to make a difference in people’s lives.
Our activities deliver public benefit and promote social inclusion through the one-to-one support of families affected by dementia as well as developing public and professional skills, knowledge and understanding of dementia. We are also contributing to the development of Dementia Friendly Communities. We do not exclude anyone from our services. The Trustees confirm that they have paid due regard to the guidance of the Charity Commission in deciding what activities the Charity should undertake.
