Great start to 2018!

2018 has so far proved brilliant for Friends of St. James’ Park.

In the first months, we won two grants for our Dementia project! We are in a great place and are looking forward to offering two information sessions on how to become Dementia Friends and have started a fortnightly drop-in session for people living with dementia.


Thanks to Awards for All which is part of the National Lottery and Southampton City Council for believing in us! We are very excited to start working on the Dementia Project and continue supporting our local community.
