imagesWe are proud to say that we are a Dementia Friendly organisation.

Our organisation has signed the Bassetlaw Dementia Pledge and all of our staff have become Dementia Friends.

People with dementia sometimes need a helping hand to go about their daily lives and feel included in their local community. Dementia Friends is giving people an understanding of dementia and the small things they can do that can make a difference to people living with dementia – from helping someone find the right bus to spreading the word about dementia.

If you would like to become a Dementia friend please contact Jayne Bullock who is our Dementia Friends Champion for more information.  Tel: 01777 709650.


There are a range of local initiatives available to help reduce the level of deaths and morbidity in Bassetlaw that are due to vulnerable people living in cold housing. These initiatives are targeted at those who are considered higher at risk: People aged 60 and over, on a low income (so can’t afford heating), have a long term condition or are disabled.
