About the event
Join us to celebrate, educate and help raise donations to support our charity, Together Dementia Support, and enable people to live positively with Dementia in Manchester. Our keynote speaker is Prof. Ross Dunne, who will speak about the latest in Dementia research and living with Dementia in a positive and healthy way.
Our service users, including people living with Dementia and carers, will be there to share their stories and sell their crafts and trinkets to raise money for the charity, as well as our running team who will be getting everyone into the competitive spirit ahead of the Manchester 10k that weekend. No doubt they will have a collection bucket or two in hand!
There will be funfair activities, educational talks, delicious food and – weather permitting – an ice cream bicycle. The Annual Showcase will be a great opportunity to celebrate our volunteers and their outstanding commitment, and to learn what it’s like to live with Dementia in our area from the experts themselves – our members.
This event is in aid of Together Dementia Support, raising money to support a local charity to enable people to live positively with Dementia in Manchester. 427,000 people in England are living with Dementia, and an estimated 30,000 of these are in the Manchester area. We support people to live actively, socially and positively, with support for both people living with Dementia and their loved ones caring for them. We are a vital service, providing a lifeline of support, advice and training that is desperately needed.
Since being established in 2014, TDS has supported over 600 people living with Dementia and their carers. We currently have over 150+ members who we support week in, week out, 52 weeks a year. Our dedicated team of Dementia Group Leaders and volunteers are the lifeblood of our service, and we wouldn’t be able to deliver such a high standard of care and support without them.
