Curiosity Cafe - Our Dementia Positive Programme
Curiosity Cafe is our flagship dementia positive programme. It puts people living with dementia, their carers and families at the heart of every activity. It is a dynamic and joyous programme developed via direct consultation with the people who live with dementia.
Our collective aim is to change the story and negative stereotypes often associated with dementia and to show what is possible in the here and now.
Curiosity Cafe runs on Tuesdays from 11am til 3pm, but places are limited and tailored to personal needs - booking is therefore essential.
To find out about the programme, please contact us.
