Forget-Me-Not Dementia Support Group

    Welcome to the Forget-Me-Not
    Dementia Support Group Website    

   The Forget-Me-Not Dementia support group has been set up to provide free advice 
and support to anyone affected by dementia. We hold a meeting every
month and welcome anyone suffering with memory problems, carers, family and friends. We are based at the Trinity Centre Point in Kirkby In Ashfield and our meetings are varied each month but we always offer a warm welcome, a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and experienced volunteers who can offer support and advice. Please feel free to come along to any of our meetings.

Kind Supporters

On Saturday the 20th August, The Nottingham Building Society (Hucknall Branch) very generously set up a fund raising event for our group. On offer to it's customers were refreshments, activities for children which included face painting, hook-a-duck and a painting competition for prizes. We would send a big thank you to all the staff for their hard work and support. 

     The support group relies entirely on donations for all its work and maximises the
     money we raise as all our team are volunteers. All donations are greatly
     appreciated whatever their amount and will be put to good use. 

     If you are able to make a donation please click the Donate button below which will 
     take you to our Local Giving page and follow the instructions.

                               Thank you.    

          How we spend your donations
          Last year we were able to provide entertainment,
          outings, a Christmas party, arrange for speakers to visit and
          provide a warm and cosy place for the group to meet and give
          useful advice, support and information by our experienced
          group of volunteers.
