At the beginning of this year the Herts Dementia Network was set up as a place for creatives in Hertfordshire, working with people with dementia and their carers, to come together to share, support and network.
We managed to meet in person once before the lockdown began. Since then we have had regular Zoom meetings.
We had no idea quite how important this support and connection would be, but it has proved to have come at a vital time when it is needed more than ever!
If you work with people with dementia in Hertfordshire and you would like to find out more about the group please do get in touch. We would love to hear from you!
How creativity and culture are supporting shielding and vunerable people at home during Covid-19
A report carried out by the Culture Health and Wellbeing Alliance looked into the different ways cultural and creative organisations and individuals have been supporting the most vulnerable in our communities during lockdown.
We are proud to have been included as one of the case studies in this important report, that highlights the vital role the arts has played in supporting people through this crisis and beyond.
