our dementia friendly site

 

The Ecology Centre is delighted to be one of the first recipients outwith Glenrothes to receive the Dementia Friendly Fife accreditation from Fife Council.  To gain accreditation involved going through a process of assessing our physical space, our signage and way finding and completing dementia friends training.  

Every Thursday we run a special programme of volunteering activities and opportunities specifically designed for people living with dementia, or in the early stages of any kind of dementia or memory loss. 

Volunteers can come along for a few hours and get involved in different tasks in our Tool Shed or around our site, including; gardening, growing projects or birdwatching around the Loch. 

Staff and volunteers at the Centre are very proud to be recognised as a dementia friendly destination. 

We've produced a short film giving an overview of all the great work that takes place every Thursday at our dementia friendly volunteering sessions.  To view, see the link below:-
