Breathing Space

Breathing Space offers people with dementia and their family member, partner, carer or support worker a range of creative activities.

It’s proven that taking part in creative activities has positive benefits to mental and physical health and well being. Participants can take part in weekly group sessions where they can meet people, make friends and have fun. Sessions include music and song, movement, dance and visual arts. It’s a place to revisit forgotten stories, songs, creative skills and movement and explore new and exciting ones.

Absolutely no previous experience is needed.

The events run most Monday's through the year, please check website or call to make sure the event is running before attending.
