Funded by DonMentia, Serenity Social is our new support group for individuals living with Young Onset Dementia and their carers. Meeting weekly on a Thursday from 2-4pm, Serenity Social is a dedicated space for people to share their experiences, take part in stimulating activities and connect with a peer group. We will also provide all participants with a journal which we will encourage you to fill in when at the sessions.

Sessions are held in Sober Social on 18 Priory Place, DN1 1BZ and we will be joined by a therapy dog, Florence, for some of the activities.

For more details about the group please get in touch.

For referral agencies

Example 13-week rota of sessions:

Our sessions run on a 13-week rotational basis but you are more than welcome to attend for longer than the 13 weeks or join in part way through.
