Welcome.

Warwickshire Reminiscence Action Project is a charity that has ben working with the community of Warwickshire for over 20 years WRAP began its life under the control of Warwickshire's Community Education Service. It was set up for the support and training of people caring for older people using Reminiscence Therapy as its core delivery.

As more and more people began to look after a loved one with dementia.  WRAP listened to their needs and devised a programme that is designed to support them .

As an organistaion, we understand just how demanding looking after a loved one living with dementia can be. We're here for you, whether it's to lend an ear or help you access the training, funding and support you need.

WRAP provides training in reminiscence Awareness, these day courses are run a minium of four times per year.

WRAP also runs eight week training programmes these are subject to grant aid and are targeted at volunteers or can be self funded..

WRAP also delivers eight week information programmes for people who are "looking after a loved one" living with dementia. called LAALO programmes.

On this web site you'll find a wealth of resource for dementia care, from our memory box loan scheme to our training workshops plus other useful links.

If there is any information you cannot find then please contact us.

Above all remember you are not alone. Its estimated that around 670,000 people in the UK are caring for a loved one with dementia of some form, which can be a lonely and overwhelming role.

Together we can make the valuable job you are already doing that little bit easier.
