How to Attend

COVID19 UPDATE: Our usual programme of Out of the Blue sessions is temporarily postponed. We have a new online creative offer that you can access from a laptop, smartphone or tablet. We're also developing new ways that people can take part in Out of the Blue without internet access.
There are also other online creative activities available for all to access with 'HOOT from home' - visit the Whats On page to find out more
We hope to see you soon.

Breathing Space

HOOT’s dementia service

Due to Covid-19 pandemic group sessions are currently suspended however we are exploring and developing other ways to offer creative activities to people living with dementia and their carer or family member. When we receive your referral a member of our team will phone you for a chat.
You can also take part in our online creative activities for free with 'HOOT from HOME' - visit the Whats On page to find out more
We hope to see you soon.

Breathing Space is for people who are concerned about their memory, or those who are in the process of obtaining or already have a diagnosis of early stage dementia and a family member, partner, carer or support worker.

You can take part in weekly group sessions (free for people living in Kirklees) where you can meet people, make friends and have fun. Sessions include music, song, movement and visual arts. Absolutely no previous experience is needed. It's a place to revisit forgotten stories, songs and creative skills and explore new and exciting ones.
