What We Do

Silverline Memories provides “places to go and things to do” for people living with dementia, their families and their carers. We do this by providing groups, activities and 1-1 support. Our work is funded through: grants from national and local Trusts and organisations, fundraising events, and donations. We aim to keep the costs of groups and activities to an absolute minimum.

During the pandemic the following sessions
have been meeting online:

  • Dementia cafes
  • Doodle Art Club
  • Young Onset Dementia peer support group
  • Dementia Carers support group
  • Weekly quiz

At the beginning of the Coronavirus Pandemic in 2020, all our face-to-face services were suspended but we quickly developed new ways of engaging and supporting our friends and their families and carers. Many of our services moved online as we led the way for digital inclusion for people with dementia.

As restrictions ease in 2021 we are taking guidance from national and local authorities, and consulting with staff and people who use our services, to ensure that face-to-face activities re-commence in the safest possible way. This may take a while so please be patient with us! If in doubt, contact us.

We’re really looking forward to a time when we can all be together again!

I cannot recommend Silverline memories enough. My Mother-in-Law has had some lovely trips out with them, most recently to Alnwick Gardens. She loves the Friday group, has lots of great laughs and Sandra and all the other wonderful volunteers are just fantastic. Thank you all.
