Arts and Dementia | Breathing Space

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. We hope to see you soon.

Please complete the form below to register your interest in Breathing Space sessions and a member of the Breathing Space team will be in touch with you as soon as possible to discuss the next steps. 

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 

For any other queries, please contact Dave or Moira (the Breathing Space team) on 01484 516224.
