Our mission is to change lives through reminiscence, improving health and wellbeing. We work with people of all ages on creative projects, especially with people living with dementia and carers; both of these demographics can access 1:1 support from us. Our Goals: 1. To reduce isolation and loneliness 2. To promote intergenerational understanding 3. To improve the quality of life and care for older people and those with dementia 4. To support carers to maintain their own health and wellbeing Our values Age Exchange strives to be person-centred, creative, open and inclusive in all that we do, including activity groups for people with dementia and their carers where they can access support; and community groups for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy physical activity, art, languages and short educational courses. We believe that focusing on the individual using reminiscence-based practices in dementia care, their stories and experiences are the cornerstone of reducing loneliness, making way to improving wellbeing. We want to create an environment where everyone feels valued and included. We recognise that differences exist and thus respond to individual need.

Sadly, affected boys usually pass away within two years of diagnosis.
The foundation’s mission is to mobilize and empower cancer patients to be brave, active patients, seeking the best treatments, doctors and hospitals, the shortest queues for diagnostic tests and any other information that can improve their treatment outcomes and health. Our mission is to educate cancer patients and give them the tools and means to make decisions regarding their own health, based on reliable information. We run the Piggy Bank Programme, a financial help programme for those struggling to cover the costs associated with cancer treatment.
