EDCCA and North Yorkshire Police
Our fabulous Knit and Natter group who meet once a month at Springhill Court have knitted some more brilliant Bobby Buddies for North Yorkshire Police to use when they are dealing with incidents where there are children. They are really useful where children need to be reassured or to break the ice. Thank you Ladies!

Ask D.A.V.E – Dementia Awareness in the Villages and Easingwold
Last Friday in the Galtres Centre, EDCCA and Dementia Forward launched an initiative called DAVE. The aim of this initiative is to raise awareness of Dementia with the opportunity to sign up for free training provided by Dementia Forward who also offer support for those affected and advice for those concerned about memory problems.
A DAVE leaflet gives information about all aspects of treatment, care and support plus activities in Easingwold which are readily accessible to Dementia Sufferers. Woven Branches Day Centre for example which is run by EDCCA in Springhill Court on Mondays and Thursdays from 10am until 3pm. Anyone can sign up for the training and we hope that more businesses will sign their staff up so we can recognise them as DAVE friendly.
We have DAVE bookmarks too and a DAVE card which can be carried by those with Dementia in case they feel bewildered or lost at any time. The card gives information about who to call if they need help.
For more information about anything to do with DAVE, please call EDCCA.
