More dementia friendly walks in your community

Sensory Trust is providing support to dementia carers and family members who wish to start their own dementia-friendly walking groups in their communities. Many people who enjoy nature and the countryside want to continue their enjoyment of walking but feel they and their loved ones would benefit from doing so in the company of others who understand the issues they have to deal with after a dementia diagnosis. We are supporting them to start up their own walking clubs;

These are not Creative Spaces clubs but groups run by people affected by dementia for people affected by dementia.

So far we are working with Maureen in Callington and Daphne in Truro.  Please contact Wendy at Sensory Trust for more information about these groups, on 01726 222900 or email wbrewin@sensorytrust.org.uk

If you are interested in starting your own local dementia-friendly outdoor group then please get in touch with Wendy at Sensory Trust on 01726 222900. We’re happy to chat about your requirements and how we might be able to support you to get your club up and running.
