What We Do
Silverline Memories is funded by Grants from both National and Local Trusts and Organisations. At the beginning of the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020, all of our face to face groups and activities were suspended and we had to look for new ways of engaging and supporting our friends and their families.
Silverline Memories moved online!
We are now leading the way for Digital Inclusion for people with Dementia, with more online groups and activities being added to our portfolio all the time. We can even provide the equipment you need to get on-line to join our groups.
Silverline Memories provides “places to go and things to do” for people living with Dementia, their carers and their families.
Once the current pandemic is over, these will include Dementia Café groups, Tea Dances, Day Trips, Theatre & Cinema trips, Pub & Restaurant outings and visits to places of local interest, for which we use our own mini-bus (The Memory Bus) which offers a door to door service.
During the Pandemic we also introduced a shopping and prescription collection and delivery service and a telephone befriending service, as well as door step welfare visits and morale gift distribution.
We offer a varied timetable of online groups and activities designed to offer friendship & fun in a safe and welcoming environment.
Our sessions include a Dementia Café, Doodle Art Club, Young Onset Dementia Peer Support Group, Quizzes and a Dementia Care Support Group.
Please keep checking back to the website as new activities are being added regularly.

Information is shared here, including all the links you will need to join our on-line support, and details of other organisations who can provide advice & information.
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.
