Meeting Centres Scotland officially launched 

Meeting Centres Scotland has been officially launched to promote community-driven dementia care. 

The Meeting Centres model was pioneered in Amsterdam 30 years ago. Scotland’s first meeting centre opened in 2019 in Kirriemuir, and Scotland now has 19 Meeting Centres that aim to increase confidence and wellbeing for people with dementia and their families. Meeting Centres are also part of Scotland’s National Dementia Strategy. 

Graham Galloway, the Interim CEO of Meeting Centres Scotland, says: 

“Meeting Centres are more than just places; they are vibrant communities where individuals living with dementia and their families find understanding, support, and joy. As we step into this new era, we remain dedicated to enhancing the lives of people living with dementia across Scotland.”
