Trent Dementia are offering support to people who would like to establish or join a DEEP group in Nottingham.
DEEP stands for the Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project – the UK network of dementia voices. DEEP consists of around 100 groups of people with dementia – groups that want to change things.
DEEP groups are independent, cover all kinds of topics and activities. Anyone living with dementia can establish a DEEP group.
Trent Dementia’s DEEP Support Hub can offer support with administration, logistics and development.
We will be recruiting sessional staff to provide support to groups and these roles will be advertised through our website in March 2019.
What is DEEP?
- a UK wide network – it connects groups to each other to magnify the views, hopes and intentions of people with dementia. It supports groups to share learning and skills and to increase confidence
- independent – the network belongs to the groups themselves, not to any particular dementia service or organisation
- diverse– it is made up of groups strongly rooted in their local communities, including some in care homes
- rights based – it encourages groups to identify and speak out about the issues that are important to them (not only to be ‘consulted’ about issues that are important to others)
what support is available?
We look forward to hearing from you. Please get in touch through the DEEP group enquiry form or call Ghazal on: 0115 74 84220
