Availability : Edinburgh Wide

Who is this for?

  • People who are 18 years old and over and who is affected by dementia


Our dementia inclusive activities aim to connect carers and people living with dementia with others in a similar situation to provide a sense of community.

This service provides social and emotional support, both peer-to-peer and by The Eric Liddell Community facilitator of the groups.

We offer a twice weekly Lunch programme where diners can relax and enjoy the company of people who understand the day-to-day challenges that dementia can have on family and friends. As well as peer support it also offers a great range of activities aimed to bring people together and improve health and wellbeing.

Physical activity – group appropriate classes include Tai Chi and active sit exercises

Social interaction – participants have an opportunity to engage with one another and the session leaders over tea breaks, lunch and during the activity sessions

Creativity and enjoyment- fun and engaging group sessions including music and singing, arts and crafts, and interactive activity

Information, support, and skills – speakers from relevant organisations and programmes regarding social, emotional, and practical support
