We are honoured and excited to announce that we have been recognised as one of Essex’s top 50 innovative businesses as part of the Innovation 50 programme. The programme is a joint initiative between Essex County Council’s Essex Innovation Programme (EIP) and Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) to support business growth in Essex.
We have exciting opportunity for a paid intern to join the team at Dementia Adventure as a fundraising assistant. Could this be what you have been looking for?
In August, Dementia Adventure Communications Assistant, Jules Loveland, ran the Bear Grylls Survival Race, in Cambridge, to raise money to help underwrite the cost of our supported dementia holidays and short breaks.

We have been delivering a series of ‘Thinking Differently about Dementia Non Clinical Falls Prevention’ training sessions in care homes around Essex. The sessions have been eye opening and ‘inspiring’ as we have sought to enable delegates to get into the mindset of someone with dementia and look at non clinical ways to reduce falls.
