We are a small group of local volunteers who make a positive difference to the quality of life of people living with dementia and also their carers and families.
We are part of Purple Angels, a global organisation raising awareness about Dementia in local shops, schools and businesses. Our aim is to improve the general understanding of dementia so that local people living with the condition receive sympathetic support from the wider community while still living in their homes.
