Charities & Volunteer Led Services

Swansea is lucky that it's home to a number of Dementia charities as well as volunteer led services. They offer support to carers and people with dementia.

The Alzheimer’s Society

The Alzheimer’s Society is the only UK charity that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure and supports people living with dementia today. Advice and support is available in Wales through their innovative Dementia Connect scheme.

Swansea Council for Volunteer Lead Services -SCVS

Swansea Council for Voluntary Service is the umbrella organisation for voluntary activity throughout the City & County of Swansea, supporting, developing and representing voluntary organisations, volunteers and communities in the County.

Swansea Carers Centre

Swansea Carers Centre is a specialist voluntary organisation providing support to carers and former carers across the City & County of Swansea. They support people who care for those with an illness or disability including learning disability, mental health problems, physical disability, dementia and other long term limiting illnesses.

Age Cymru Swansea Bay

Age Cymru Swansea Bay is a vibrant, independent, local charity. They have been working across Swansea for over 40 years, helping older people to maintain their independence and age well. In April 2017, they expanded their services to cover Neath Port Talbot and are now supporting adults of all ages who live in the region to live and age well.

Musical Memories Choir

The Musical Memories Choir is for people effected by Dementia in any way. It’s a great place to socialise and connect with others over singing and a tasty lunch. There are meetings every Tuesday and Friday.

Forget Me Not

The Forget Me Not Dementia Day Clubs were set up in Swansea in October 2010 to help people living with all types of dementia and their careers. They aim to hold day clubs for people with dementia and their carers to meet in a social environment in a local base: to give the person with dementia and their carer an opportunity for friendship, continued access to social life and to have enjoyment in life. The Clubs are run by volunteers, and this will hopefully integrate people with dementia and their carers into the local community.

Forge Fach Clydach

The Forge Fach Community Hub in Clydach, South Wales, is a new model for social enterprise and disability inclusion, around and with the local community. Their vision is to create a fully inclusive environment that embraces the needs of the community regardless of age, gender or ability. It aims to be a place at the heart of the community that promotes equal opportunities, provides integration and breaks down barriers.
