Update from the Connection Space

Matlock based Community Interest Company – the Connection Space – runs a nature based project at Matlock Farm Park.

This project is seeking volunteers living with memory difficulties and ‘buddy volunteers’ to support the project. The project follows on from the successful Care Farming Projects that have run at Matlock Farm Park.

Again Matlock Farm Park is keen to collaborate with the Connection Space and with the additional funding from the National Lottery, Derbyshire Dales District Council Local Projects, Matlock Town Council, Derbyshire Voluntary Action and the Alzheimer’s Society, there is an opportunity to access meaningful volunteering roles.

Starting in October – on the 4th Monday of each month 10.30 – 2.30 – Jaggers Lane, Matlock, DE4 5LH.

If you are interested or if you know someone with memory difficulties or dementia who might like to come along, please contact the Connection Space on 07450 195051 and speak to Mary. Or email theconnectionspace@icloud.com

The Connection Space would also like to share news of ‘Care to Dance’ starting up again on the 21st October.  This is a creative and therapeutic dance project for people living with health conditions including dementia that may be affecting wellbeing. It takes place at the Claire Dobinson School of Dance in Rowsley. Contact details – as above.
