What people have said after attending these workshops.

‘The programme was well presented and it was very helpful to meet others and listen to their stories. I didn’t feel so alone as a carer of someone with dementia. I learned a lot form the information and would recommend this course to anyone in a dementia caring role.’ - Craigavon programme participant
