Summary of report content

Research showed that Scotland had initially led the way with the development of Dementia Hubs. The nearest geographically is the Dementia Hub in the neighbouring borough of Merton. Healthwatch arranged a guided visit of the facility in Mitcham to establish the services and facilities that could be combined to create a ‘Hub’. Preliminary meetings showed that key stakeholders were very keen to see how this project could be developed in Sutton. These meetings also established that there were no conventional lines that could be taken forward to establish funding to deliver the project. In order to progress the project, a project group was convened in June. At this meeting a commitment was made to support this work through existing resources. The reports informs 4 Dementia Hub events were held in the 2018 between 11.00am – 2.00pm. To conclude the events were well received by staff supporting them. For the most part, events were well received by members of the public who attended. Attendance varied but was relatively low at all events and especially low at the Wallington Citizens’ Advice and Alzheimer’s Society offices.
