Who We Are and What We Do
Since achieving charitable status in 2017, Dementia Matters in Powys has been working hard to promote our cause and we have been focused on the development and running of accessible and inclusive Meeting Centres. We believe that Meeting Centres act as a safe environment where people living with dementia and their family members can nurture friendships, receive peer support and be included.
DMiP has an exciting and challenging agenda which addresses the growing incidence of dementia in our communities and seeks to provide an imaginative response, offering local solutions to local issues, whilst mainstreaming the best that is available and focusing on continuous improvement in all that we do.
While there is always more that can be done to help those in need in our community, there’s no doubt that we are making a significant impact. See how you can become part of the difference.
