Great friendliness and welcome shown by all; the singing and dancing; the join-in philosophy; the various other activities in adjoining rooms; the great location; the structured activity – but it is low-key and better for that. Lovely volunteers.

Caring, non-judgemental, friendly supportive environment, filled with wonderful people and staffed by wonderful friends. Throughly enjoyable and brightens my mum’s day. What more can you ask for. Don’t change what is already perfect.

Tina and June (March 2017)
“I just wanted to say thank you for the work that you do in running your group. My Stepfather has been attending recently and he really enjoys it, especially the singing at the end. It is a really valuable service that you are providing and it is much appreciated. I live in Sussex so am not nearby and it is good for me to know that he has a group to go to that he finds friendly and enjoyable.”
Caroline, Carer of person with dementia
“Lovely to meet you and the team yesterday. You are all doing fantastic work and it was nice to see such good rapport between volunteers, people with dementia and their carers. It is a very well run group and it’s easy to see why you have such great attendance.”
Abbey, Commissioning Officer Royal Greenwich
About both groups
Thank you and the group for what you have been doing. You are all fantastic. It made mum’s day every time she went there. Keep going, as you help so many people. The advice I got at the Carers’ Support Group really helped me.
