Dates for all Butterflies groups across Hull and East Riding 2019

All Groups In Hull and East Riding for 2019

 

Activities include informative speakers, quizzes, music, drama, gardening, history and much more.  There is something for everyone as all members have a say in what activities you would like.  Our workshops aim to provide a fun activity that carers and the cared for can enjoy together and provide a new talking point to help get through the routine of the day.

 

We are a group for people with memory problems, their carers and families.

All ages are welcome.

 

You will always have a chance for a cuppa and a chat before our speaker or workshops start at all of our venues we are always at the venues at least 45 mins before the start time

 

We cover a wide range of activities and always offer a choice if what we have scheduled does not appeal to you.

You can see what activity we have planned at the sessions on our website or Facebook group. This is updated each month.

 

Each session costs £5 per person (unless otherwise stated) including tea/coffee and biscuits.  Light snacks are usually available at all of our venues.

 

You don’t have to be referred by other services to join us, just give us a call and we will give you an opportunity to pop in to meet us and have a chat before you come along to any of our groups. 

Referral forms are available on our website for other services who wish to refer someone.  

 

The Butterflies operate in Hull and East Riding with their HQ on Alfred Gelder Street Hull.

 In addition to our monthly meetings we offer a selection of trips & days out and extra workshop projects exploring music, singing, drama and other arts based activities also extra advice and support sessions will be held at various times throughout the year for carers and the cared for.

If you are a person with dementia/memory problems, or caring for someone affected by the condition, why not come and join us?  Or, if you are interested in joining the group as a volunteer, we are always looking for people to help from admin duties to serving tea or simply coming along to befriend members and join in with the fun!
