Welcome to the website of Devon Memory Cafe Consortium (DMCC) – a membership organisation set up to represent the best interests of Memory Cafes in Devon with one informed voice. On this website, you can find out more about our aims and the benefits of joining us, as well as accessing a range of tailored practical support to help you with the day-to-day running of your Memory Cafe.
Is your café Quality Assured?
This scheme is open to Memory Cafés who provide support, services, and activities to improve the health and wellbeing of people in our communities. It demonstrates how your memory cafes are delivered, and how the relevant policies and practices of your organisation ensure safe, caring, effective and responsive services. This helps health professionals and the public build confidence in, and awareness of, the range and quality of health and wellbeing activities and services available through Memory Cafés.
What are the benefits?
There are many benefits to becoming a part of our consortium, including accessing training tailored to meet your needs, gaining advice on funding, getting hold of policies and guidance to ensure the quality of your Memory Cafe and picking up plenty of tried-and-tested ideas and activities. To become a member of Devon Memory Cafe Consortium, please download our Membership Form.
We have also set up our own Facebook page – a way to find out what other Memory Cafes across the county are providing and to tap into the latest news and opportunities to support people living with dementia and their carers.
