Camden Minds: Dementia Involvement Group – DEEP (The Dementia Engagement & Empowerment Project)

Camden Minds (previously called The Cameos) is part of the national Dementia Engagement & Empowerment Project (DEEP) which supports groups to try to change services and policies that affect the lives of people with dementia.

The Camden Minds are a dementia Involvement Group based in the London Borough of Camden. Camden Minds members describe themselves as a “friendly bunch”. The group meet on a monthly basis in the Belsize Park area.

The aims of the Camden Minds are to:

  • Reduce the stigma of dementia
  • Have a say in services and policies relevant to us
  • Get peer support

The Camden Minds are currently supported by DEEP, Camden Carers Centre and Age UK Camden.
