Together Dementia Support Shortlisted for National Lottery People’s Projects

Together Dementia Support are delighted to be on the shortlist for the National Lottery’s People’s Projects funding competition!

How will the funding be used? If we won funding, our group would use the funding to purchase an accessible minibus to enable people living with dementia to attend group activities and improve their quality of life. The minibus will mean that they will be able to attend their sessions, especially the gospel choir which sings regularly at community events. The minibus will also be used for trips to the countryside, leisure centres, art galleries and other places of their choosing.

How can I vote and support your project? Visit the People’s Projects website and submit your vote online. You will need to fill in your name, email address and postcode. Then you will receive an email with a voting link that you need to click on to confirm your vote. Please remember: In order for your vote to be counted, please follow the link in the email and remember to check your junk folder! Thank you.

When can I vote? Voting opens for all projects at 9am on Monday 16 April 2018 and closes at midday on Monday 30 April 2018.

How can I vote if I don’t have an email address? You can vote by post by sending a postcard to ‘Freepost THE PEOPLE’S PROJECTS’ (this must be in CAPITAL LETTERS) To be counted, the following details must be clearly written on the postcard: your name, postcode, address and telephone number, and the name of the project (or Projects) you wish to vote for. Please use a standard postcard format, with your voting details on the left-hand side and the FREEPOST address on the right-hand side. No postcode is needed for the FREEPOST address, and just leave the other side blank.

Please send your postal vote by last post Wednesday 25 April 2018 to help ensure it arrives in time. Postal votes must be received by 12pm (midday) on Monday 30 April 2018. You can vote once per person per region. For children and vulnerable adults, we advise you to put their postcards in an envelope and follow the instructions for the FREEPOST postal vote, ensuring the only address on the envelope is the FREEPOST address.

We would be delighted if you would support us and cast your votes to help our Fab Forgetful Friends and other community groups for people with dementia and carers living in Manchester.
