The Powys Dementia Network was started by PAVO in 2016 to provide a Powys-wide network for people living with dementia, their carers and statutory and third sector organisations offering services and support.
If you are interested in being added to the Powys Dementia Network email list, please contact Sue Newham, sue.newham(at)pavo.org.uk
The Powys Dementia Network is held every 6 months, usually in January and July. The purpose of the network is to enable the voice of those living with dementia to be heard. They and their carers are able to talk about what matters to them, so they can affect decisions about how services are provided in Powys. The networks also enable organisations to share best practice and let people know about their services.
For more information contact PAVO on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Dementia Network planned for October 2023 has had to be cancelled. Those who are on the email list will be informed of the rescheduled date.
