A North-east club is set to benefit from £35,000 from a national trust.
The Forget Me Not club in Banchory will receive the money from the Life Changes Trust.
The club helps people with dementia by providing support, advice and activities for people living with the condition.
Funding will be used to increase the number of people the group can support in the area, as well as the number and variety of services and activities it can provide.
Anna Buchanan director of the Life Changes Trust dementia programme, said: “The Forget Me Not Club is already providing vital services and support for people living with dementia and their carers in Banchory.
“We are delighted that this funding will not only enable them to increase and extend their services to even more people, but will give them the opportunity to become a vibrant hub for the dementia community.”
Heather Morrison, from the Forget Me Not Club, said: “We are now dealing with a marked increase in younger clients within our Resource Centre, and this has led us to setting up a new strand called Active Forget Me Not.
“This operates at a local Outdoor Sports Centre, Knockburn Loch, where activities such as dementia friendly cycling, walking football, walking and kite flying make up a programme more suited to those still physically fit.”
