Surrey Heath Pilot Project

We are excited to announce a new collaboration with Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. 

We will be working together to deliver a part time 12-month pilot project in the Surrey Heath area. 

The service will include groups for those diagnosed with dementia age 65 and under, carer support groups, education sessions and one to one's, amongst many others.

We won't be letting the pandemic get in our way and will be working in line with the government's guidelines, delivering the service initially via virtual groups, telephone calls and one to ones, as appropriate.

We know that social interaction is important to us all, but especially for those living with dementia. We can't wait to deliver age-appropriate and meaningful activity workshops such as equine therapy, golf and creative arts face to face as soon as we are able to. 

In the meantime, we will adapt and get creative so please stay tuned for virtual sessions such as art, current affairs, book groups and quiz nights. 

The pandemic has been and continues to be a challenging time for us all, but we hope the announcement of this new service brings a little light to those living with young onset dementia, their carers and families in the Surrey Heath area.

If you live in the Surrey Heath area and would benefit from the service, please e-mail Charlie Draper:
