In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.


Eric Liddell Centre

Lunch Breaks is for carers and the person they care for (who is living with dementia), where they can enjoy a relaxing time doing recreational activities together with the company of others.

One of the goals is to help reduce a sense of isolation through peer support, as well as through simple enjoyment of the activities and interaction.

The group shares a hot lunch together followed by a varied programme of activities including multisensory sessions involving poetry, singing, period objects, and more.

Lunch Breaks meets on Fridays from 1:00pm - 3:30pm.

This work is generously funded from the Life Changes Trust. The Trust is funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
