Irish in Britain is delighted to be running this new project to support family, friends and volunteers caring for people living with dementia. With support from the Race Equality Foundation, we are particularly targeting people from Irish and BAME communities, but the project is open to all.
Cuimhne is Irish for memory and although our reminiscence materials have an Irish focus they have a wider relevance to all as the themes and suggestions are present in all of our lives and cultural groups.
People are welcome to join
• Weekly Wednesday Webinars, which feature a talk from professionals who work in the dementia field, such as Admiral Nurses. They cover some of the main issues for carers of people with dementia and are free of charge and open to all.
• Secure online forum to support carers.
