In it together - No one should have to face dementia alone.

Dementia Matters in Powys provide invaluable support, advice and information to those affected by Dementia; empowering and enabling people to adjust to and influence change.

· We are the first in Wales to adopt the successful Dutch model of Meeting Centres which provide socialisation, cognitive and physical activities, peer-support, advice, information and a meal prepared by dedicated teams of Volunteers. Meeting Centres offer a safe, non-judgemental environment and are currently supporting an average of 80 people each week across the County. We would like to extend the number of Meeting Centre days and have the capacity to offer 360 places each week, we don't have the funding to do that currently and are fighting to keep the current operational days open.

· We help to raise awareness of Dementia

· We engage on a national level influencing, changing & shaping current & future services

· We work in partnership with the Association for Dementia Studies (University of Worcester) and the international Meeting Centre research programme

We need your help to raise £40,000 to save us from closure on 31 December 2023 - can you please help to keep the vital Meeting Centres operational in Powys?

About the charity

Dementia Matters in Powys is a newly-established charitable organisation that works in partnership with communities, third-sector and statutory organisations to develop and share innovative practice. The ultimate collective goal is to create a dementia friendly county that fully supports the health, well-being and quality of life of people living with dementia or at evident risk of dementia, and those who care for them. Dementia Matters in Powys is committed to giving a voice to those living with dementia and doing things ‘with’ people rather than ‘for’ them. By working together in this way we will create communities that respect, value and empower individuals so that they are more able to face the challenges before them and can exercise more choice and control in their own lives. Our vision can be simply summed up as : Powys – Communities Where People With Dementia Matter
