Trent Dementia supports people affected by a diagnosis of dementia through empowerment and education projects.
Our team offers support to people who want to establish or participate in peer support groups either online or face to face.
Groups may also choose to become part of a national network of Dementia Peer Support Groups called DEEP.
The first group we supported called Friends for Life is part of the DEEP network and is a self- organising community group. They raise funds and plan activities for members with face-to-face meetings in Gedling when possible.
We can help with administration, booking venues, arranging catering, and helping organise your meetings – we will also promote your meeting and activity on social media. We also facilitate groups online.
We work with people affected by dementia to develop an annual educational event to share our experiences, learn about the latest research and support across the East Midlands. Our next event is 2222 VISION and will be held on the 22nd September 2022.
