100 funded projects. 2,700 backers. £700k+ raised and counting!
The aim of the pop up hubs is a one stop shop information point for local residents, their carers and anyone else affected by or with an interest in dementia. The hubs will be placed in locations such as Worthing Library, St Lawrence Surgery, Southdown Leisure, Impulse Leisure, Worthing Hospital, Worthing Town Centre and Drumconner Care Home. The hubs are supported by a coordinator and someone from local organisations such as Carers Support West Sussex, Alzheimer's Society, Guild Care, Dementia Assessment Services, Carers and people living with dementia who are all part of the Worthing Dementia Action Alliance. The hubs are an opportunity for people to find out information if they don't know where else to go or may not have the resources to find out about local day services or support groups.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
