In the summer of 2016, Central Bedfordshire Council ran a competitive tender process for support services for people living with dementia and their carers.
Tibbs Dementia, Carers in Bedfordshire and the Alzheimer's Society all worked together to commission a range of services to help people living with dementia, and carers, to understand the condition and maintain their wellbeing. The aim is that the organisations commission and deliver support – and with the local authorities and the East London Foundation Trust (ELFT) - give people across Bedfordshire affected by dementia a range of joined up services that would meet their needs along all stages of a dementia journey.
The full list of services can be found here and are under a new contract from 1st December 2016. Some of these services are ongoing; some are new so will not necessarily start immediately on 1st December 2016.
Please note that the services listed are not necessarily the only services delivered by the organisations cited. You can check their individual websites or contact them for full details:
