A Helpful Space
A Helpful Space is on 26th September, 3rd and 31st October, 14th and 28th November and 19th December from 9.30am till 11am. This is a space where you can drop in and find out information and find out about advice, support and guidance around Dementia - if we don't know an answer to your enquiries then we will try and find out and contact you with what we find.
Dementia Friendly Farm Afternoons
Once a month, on a Wednesday from 1.30pm till 3pm we are offering the Farm experience to people with Dementia and their carers. Experiences can include work in the garden, work with the animals, crafts, woodwork etc.
The dates are 9th October, 13th November, 11th December, 8th January, 12 February, 11th March

For all of these events please make sure you contact Lee for more information and to register you interest on [email protected] or call 0114 258 0482
Walks For Wellbeing
Join us every Monday (excluding Bank Holidays) at 11am at Heeley Green Post Office on Gleadless Road for a gentle walk around the area.
Walk for Wellbeing is a great way to discover more about your local area whilst helping to improve your health and wellbeing. Come along, get active and meet new people in a friendly and relaxed group.
The walks are FREE and last about 1 hour, (approx. 1-2miles) and take in local places of interest such as the Millenium Park and Heeley City Farm. They are open to eveyone - we always go at a speed that is comfortable for everyone.After the walk we enjoy refreshments at the Church of the Nazarene.
If you would like to take part, just turn up at the meeting point a few minutes early.
FTD Carers Group
On the second Tuesday of every month Heeley City Farm's Dementia Department hold a Carers Group for people caring for someone with Frontotemporal Dementia (formally Pick's Disease).
This is a confidential but informal space where people living in the dementia world can vent, chat to others about what they are going through and, in-turn, help people who might have queries of their own. The group is growing by the month with new faces each time. This is a great space to learn about FTD from the people who are living it in every day life. The people who know. The group is run by the Dementia Manager, Lee Pearse, with the help of his brother, Andrew Pearse, who both cared for their mother, Valerie, who had FTD for over 12 years. Lee and Andrew know how speaking to people who know what you are talking about can bring a sense of relief that you are not the only ones going through it and that is what they hope people get from the group, a social element that carers often miss whilst caring for someone whilst getting support from their peers.
Wild 'N' Woolly
Wild and Woolly is a knitting and craft group on Thursday evenings (6pm till 9pm) every fortnight!
Bring your own project to work on and join us in the Community Room (by the Peahen enclosure at the main entrance) for a social space where you can work on your project with others, have a cuppa and a natter at the same time.
