Thank you for supporting Pay for a Day

This Christmas please give what you can to keep the smiles on the faces of our dementia day club members and their families.

The cost to attend our day clubs is £20 per member, per day. We strive to keep this ‘core’ cost as low as possible for our members and this is why we are asking for your help this Christmas. Daybreak receives no government funding and we rely solely on the charitable fundraising efforts and donations of the public or grants from corporate supporters and organisations.

This festive period, please give what you can so that we can continue to run our day centres smoothly and keep our member’s costs low. A donation of £20 will help us to pay for the core costs of operating our day centres and allow us to investigate the possibility of opening more centres across Oxfordshire for people who may need it in 2019.

What is Daybreak?

Daybreak is a specialist charity which offers stimulation and support for people living with dementia and memory loss as well as a day’s respite for carers.

Daybreak Clubs are for anyone affected by dementia. They are places where people are welcome whether a person has just been diagnosed or have been affected for some time.

Daybreak is about enabling people with a dementia to lead a more engaged and fulfilling life by bringing together professional help, within communities of support and respite care.

We also welcome the involvement of family, friends and carers, in Daybreak’s activities  as they will be and are often deeply affected by dementia too. We know that those who love and look after someone with dementia can also feel anxious, vulnerable and isolated.

Each year tens of thousands of people are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and the figure is rising annually. The good news is that people are living longer but unfortunately  the older you get the more likely you are to suffer from a dementia.

Latest statistics show that one in four people over 70 are diagnosed with dementia / Alzheimer’s

Daybreaks through its clubs helps to improve the quality of life of people with a dementia  by providing a safe social environment,  it enables carers and their families to enjoy a day’s respite

Daybreak clubs act as an antidote to the loneliness and despair of a dementia diagnosis. In a nutshell Daybreak helps visitors to their clubs (and their carers) have the best possible life with a dementia /memory loss diagnosis

We need your help to make our vision a reality for Oxfordshire.

Every penny you raise will have a direct impact on the service we offer.

Thank you for your support.
