Our goal for our first year was to build a garden and start regular workshops for people living with dementia, their carers and families. Looking back over the last very busy months it looks like we have acheived that goal and even more.
We have a fabulous garden, designed with help from our Garden Club members to be dementia friendly, safe and accessable.
Our Garden Club is established and with our Lottery Funding we will be able to run it for a further year.
Carers had the oppotunity to learn some new crafts over the summer .
We have led workshops around the County for other organisations providing a service for people living with dementia.
Through Sing-Songs, coffee mornings, quiznights and more we have joined with the local community for events both in our garden and out and about.
Behind the scenes we have received donations from individuals and organisations. Set up all our govenance, from policies and proceedures, business plans, action plans and plans of plans!
And – most importantly – from feedback we have received, we know we have made a difference, sometimes small and sometimes very big, to a lot of people who have been touched by the work of The Red Shed Project during 2019.
Now its time to celebrate and look forward to 2020. Merry Christmas everone!
