Town Break

This charity works to help people with early to moderate dementia, and to improve their quality of life.  It hopes to enable people with dementia to maintain their independence in the community and support carers.  It provides a range of services from the Community Hospital in Stirling, Scotland; including advice and information services, a twice-weekly Day Club, a weekly coffee club, a monthly friendship group, a befriending service, a cognitive stimulation therapy programme and a rural Day Club in nearby Callander.

In February 2016, the Foundation offered a grant of £6,000 to Town Break.  The funding will go toward the administrator’s post, and effectively double the hours the administrator works.  This will help to improve efficiency of the charity overall, and enable it to meet an increasing demand for its services
