“Kirrie Connections is a community hub that serves as the base for the Dementia Friendly Kirriemuir Project. The hub is a place where people living with dementia and their carers can get advice, support and form new friendships. We work with a variety of other partners, including Alzheimer Scotland and the Angus Carer’s Centre. The hub is open 5 days a week, Monday to Friday from 9:30am- 4pm, and offers sessions ranging from arts and crafts to sporting memories.

 

We are currently looking for volunteers to help support our activities, and are also looking for people living with dementia and their carers to be directly involved in telling us what they want from the project.
