Our fantastic team are now settled into 50 Ferring Street, a huge thank you to Beehive Care for making them feel so welcome.

Whilst we still await news of our funding from the National Lottery we are delighted that we can start reopening some of our services such as the D-Café and Brain Gym.

D-Café will return from the 13th of May in time to celebrate Dementia Action Week. Whatever happens with our funding will come back looking a little different, but, we will still be here to support people living with dementia their friends, and family.

About Dementia Friendly Worthing

The Worthing Area Dementia Forum first met in October 2013, as bi-monthly public meetings at venues such as Guild Care and the Worthing Alzheimer’s Society. Supported by these charities and Carers Support West Sussex and Coastal West Sussex Mind, our aim was to establish a dementia friendly community in the Worthing area.

Our vision is to create an inclusive dementia friendly community where people living with dementia, and their family carers, are active participants within the community. A place where people with dementia can remain independent and have choice and control over their lives within a safe and rewarding supportive environment.

Worthing’s dementia-friendly community, with its many dementia friends of all ages, and from all walks of life, are already having a positive impact.
