Course Details:

Start date is September 9th and runs through to the end of November 2024, the course runs from 1pm until 3pm every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month.

The course is free but as we are a self-funding charity, donations are very welcome. We recommend a donation of £10 per session, paid online via the website, at www.caraway.uk.com donate page, and label it CCC Sholing.

Please note:  This is a course for carers! The carer will attend the sessions alone and the person with dementia can be included in the Memory Café that will be going on in the next room. A safe and fun place for them to be.
