The DIAL Project

Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan, [Also Bridgend, Merthyr and RCT]

Dial is a 'Platfform' project. Registered charity no. 1000889

The DIAL project supports people living with dementia and their carers in Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan, Bridgend, Merthyr and Rhondda Cynon Taf.  Funded by the Welsh Government's Social Service Grant, the project delivers much needed services that improve the lives of people living with dementia and those who care for them.

Services

DIAL offers a wide range of dementia related training opportunities, throughout Wales.

DIAL leads group sessions in Care Homes, or anywhere where there is a community of people with dementia within our area of service. Sessions are  underpinned by theories such as Cognitive Stimulation Therapy and Reminiscence Therapy and intended to be multi-sensory, fun environments for those participating. We seek to empower staff/volunteers in these communities to continue running groups in the longer term.

DIAL also offers personalised, 1:1 support for people in the community living with dementia, providing individuals with a positive, personalised action plan based on their particular needs and ambitions. The principal aim of the 1:1  support is to help the individual to be as physically and mentally active as possible whilst providing their family members and/or carers with  degree of support. Whilst there is no charge for this service the number of referrals that can be accepted is limited.

DIAL welcomes expressions of interest from anyone interested in volunteering.

Referrals

Training services are currently free of charge and can be tailored to the organisation's needs. We accept referrals from health professionals and individuals. For further information and qualifying criteria, please contact DIAL.
