St Andrew's Church of Scotland Carluke
St Andrew’s Church of Scotland Carluke was awarded funding of £30,000, from May 2019 to April 2020.
St Andrew’s Church Carluke offers support for people with memory difficulties and their carers.
Their aim is to provide activities which engage and enrich, as well as support friendship – for example, they have a dementia friendly garden space, offer dementia friendly walking groups and run Heart for Art sessions among other things.
All activities are developed in consultation with families affected by dementia, and reflect the benefits of maintaining an active lifestyle which can help tackle isolation and loneliness by reconnecting people via diverse activities.
