Our Fab Forgetful Friends meet monthly to socialise and reminisce.

Members share lived experience and can relate to each other in a way people who do not live with dementia can understand. They enjoy making friends, having a cuppa, laughing, chatting and going out on trips.

The FFF want to have support and understanding, fight discrimination and stereotype, and raise awareness.
