We are opening a Dementia Café and Carers Support Group at the Fair Close Centre to support people living with dementia and their carers. Age Concern Newbury & District which runs the Fair Close Centre have become members of Dementia Friendly West Berkshire (DFWB) and are working in partnership with Age UK Berkshire, Dementia Friendly West Berkshire, The Fairclose Centre and Berkshire Healthcare Foundation Trust.

The groups will be running once a month on the first Wednesday of the month at the Fairclose Centre, Newtown Road, Newbury, RG14 7BH from 11am – 12 noon. Both groups are open to anyone who would like to attend. There will be a £2.50 per person charge for the Dementia Café and no charge for the Carers Support Group. There is some free parking on site and additional chargeable parking directly opposite the venue at a cost of £1 for 2 hours or £2 for 4 hours max. Please call 0118 959 4242 or email victoria.rowland@agewestberkshire.org.uk for more information or to book your place.
