Memory Matters South West is a Community Interest Company

Therapeutic Approaches to
Memory Loss & Dementia

We are a Community Interest Company (CIC). We provide a range of therapy, support services and education to help people to live well with their dementia.

Memory Matters SW CIC is a social enterprise. We trade for public benefit rather than private gain and all our projects and services are designed, developed and  built on the needs of those living with dementia.

We are a team of dedicated individuals who share an ethos of compassion, kindness, fun and curiosity. The team is led by founders Kate and Laura, qualified nurses and social entrepreneurs.

We are champions of Cognitive Stimulation Therapy, a therapy proven to slow the progression of dementia and increase quality of life. We weave this into all our services with the guidance of the very people we serve.

A quiet retreat away from bustling city centre

Our Memory Matters Hub is based at Moments Café in Plymouth. The Hub provides lots of FREE information and support for people in the city. It is a one stop shop for all memory matters.

Improving the lives of people living with dementia

Our aim is to work closely with individuals and relevant agencies and organisations in the South West to reach a time where every person living with dementia can live well, supported and with happiness.


"I cannot express how wonderful I found the whole experience I felt understood, reassured comforted, inspired and came away with a wealth of information. We truly bless the day we found Memory Matters."
Mr. Emmett, Saltash
