Dementia Friendly Community Working Group

The Town Council’s Dementia Friendly Community working group was established back in 2018 and has been busy since then raising awareness about dementia and memory loss within the local community in Great Torrington.  The group gets involved in a variety of activities including running Dementia Friends sessions, launching a Silent Space in the town centre where people living with dementia and their carers can get some respite from the hustle and bustle of a busy town, organising a free film screening at The Plough of a film raising awareness about dementia and much, much more! 

If you are interested in helping the group out to achieve the important goal of making Great Torrington a Dementia Friendly Community, please do get in touch: we are particularly keen to engage with people who have experience of either working with, or caring for, people living with dementia or memory loss and who are eager to get stuck-in with the practical side of raising awareness throughout the town. 

For more information, please call or email Charlotte Kirby, Assistant Town Clerk on 01805 626135 / or feel free to pop into the Town Council’s office for an informal chat.  We are open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 9am and 1pm.
