SCVS Logo - no wordsA partnership between SCVS and Swansea GP Clusters, and funded by the West Glamorgan Regional Partnership (ICF Dementia Funding); Swansea Dementia and Carer Project supports people living with Dementia, and carers of people with Dementia, registered in GP Practices in Swansea.

The project provides people living with dementia, and their carers, an opportunity to engage socially in the community, access community resources with the support of a volunteer; as well as reducing isolation and offering a listening ear to those it supports.

All GP Practices in Swansea are supported by the project.
