Silverline Memories aims to relieve the social isolation and loneliness experienced by people living with dementia and their carers. It works to provide support that enables people to live life to the full, and helps people with dementia to find joy and to share in meaningful activities and clubs. The charity operates in Newcastle upon Tyne, and offers a wide variety of services and sessions.
At the June 2020 meeting, Allen Lane Foundation Trustees agreed a grant of £6,000 for Silverline Memories. This funding will contribute towards salary costs. At present there is only one worker, and the aim is that, alongside running activities and managing the work, this role will develop further income streams and help the organisation to grow.
