Communities of Interest for BME

Dementia Awareness in our communities

Members of the Catholic community met up on a wet and windy November night at Sacred Heart Church on Carlton Hill to find out about dementia awareness. Imagine our surprise when we found the room full to capacity! Trust staff were on hand to meet people individually to offer a friendly chat, guidance and advice.

Deacon Anthony O’Sullivan and Father Dolan will invite the group back in the future to share more about the work of the Community of Interest.
