Good grant for Together Dementia Support’s new minibus

A much needed new minibus for Together Dementia Support in Manchester just got much closer. John has worked on an application to the Clothworker’s Foundation and just heard that this has yielded £27,500! Having two minibuses is essential in order to support people with dementia and their carers getting to social, leisure and learning activities which all keep people going. As one member said: “Attending TDS groups is a lifeline for me and my husband. We don’t have a car and our children are all at work. Also my husband’s walking is now very poor so we couldn’t walk to a bus stop. Without transport he wouldn’t be able to attend the groups that give him friendship and the stimulation so important to people with dementia. I would also lose the brief periods of respite that enable me to keep going.”
