Based in Nottingham, the Wainman Trust runs two clubs for older people,including those with early-stage dementia. These run weekly in the Clifton and Arnold areas of Nottingham and in the last year have benefitted 44 individuals. At the clubs, people share a healthy meal and take part in activities as well as occasional outings. Outcomes for members include a reduction in social isolation and loneliness, as well as improved physical and mental well-being.
With increasing numbers and demand, the clubs require additional staffing. At the June 2018 Trustee meeting, the Foundation offered a grant totalling £4,992 to fund an assistant coordinator to help run the club at Clifton.
