Lancashire Dementia Voices has a new name and a new mission building on its strong local and national links. The group sadly lost some of its members in 2016 resulting in the closure of the group. During its previous operations however, it became self-evident that although Lancashire is a large County, it is mainly rural, which unfortunately results in many dementia services and support not reaching these communities.
As it has no offices or paid staff, the groups volunteers will be moving around the county with various roadshows and bring friendly support to those who sadly do not have a voice but from people who know what it’s like to live with the condition first hand. Built on solid foundations and understanding from its previous work, the group hopes to provide this rural service in the coming months.
