The Healthy Living Club

We run Clubs that include people with dementia, their carers, older adults with other long term conditions and volunteers as equal members.
The South London Health Innovation Network (HIN) measured the Social Return on investment of our Wednesday Club. Their study (published in September 2015) found that our annual expenditure of £30,784 (plus the resources in kind we leverage in, including £58,736 worth of volunteers' time) generate £506,094 worth of 'social value'.

Founded 2012

  • Mission statement

    Our charity's mission is to provide people with dementia and their carers (who live in the London Borough of Lambeth and adjoining boroughs) with the opportunity to engage in relationships of mutual benefit with people in their same situation, but also with others, at Clubs which include as equal members older adults with disabling conditions other than dementia, as well as the volunteers themselves. The aim is to replace all members’ sense of isolation with sense of belonging to a community group of which they share ownership, and within which dementia has no stigma attached.

  • Aims

    The Healthy Living Club aims to:

    • ENABLING THEIR ACTIVE PARTICIPATION IN RELATIONSHIPS OF MUTUAL SUPPORT WITHIN A COMMUNITY OF WHICH THEY SHARE OWNERSHIP, THUS REPLACING THEIR SENSE OF ISOLATION WITH "SENSE OF BELONGING"
    • THE DEVELOPMENT & PROVISION OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA TO PARTICIPATE IN SOCIAL ACTIVITIES THAT MEET THEIR NEEDS, & SUPPORT THEIR ENGAGEMENT IN MEANINGFUL OCCUPATIONS OF THEIR CHOICE
    • RAISING AWARENESS AND PROMOTING UNDERSTANDING OF THE ISSUES THAT AFFECT PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA AND THEIR CARERS.
