Supporting Local Dementia Groups In Ipswich

With our performances of Florian Zeller's Oscar-winning drama, The Father, coming up, we wanted to spotlight Headway Suffolk who run monthly local support groups for people living with dementia. Full details of their programmes are below and if you wish to book for the film head over to our booking page HERE.


Dementia Social Support Groups in Ipswich area

Local charity Headway Suffolk runs monthly social support groups for people living with dementia.

The group take part in a variety of stimulating and engaging activities, such as indoor games, cognitive exercises, discussions and social interaction.

It costs £7 per person, which includes a fish and chips lunch and refreshments. The person with dementia must be accompanied by a carer/partner.


When + Where?

The group takes place on Friday 2nd July and Friday 23rd July from 11.45am - 3.15pm and is currently held at Headway’s hub at Epsilon House, West Road, Ransomes Europark, Ipswich, IP3 9FJ.

Once Covid restrictions have fully eased in August, we hope to return the group to its original location at St Augustine’s Church, Bucklesham Road in Ipswich IP3 8TH.

This will be on every 2nd Friday of the month.


Martlesham and Castle Hill

The lifting of restrictions will also allow us to reopen our two other dementia groups.

Every 4th Thursday of the month at St Michael’s Church Centre, The Drift in Martlesham.

Every 4th Friday of the month at Castle Hill United Reformed Church, Dryden Road in Castle Hill.
