Thanks for your comments Meldrew. This is a sad time but we have been overwhelmed by supportive e mail from members of the LGBT community both from here and from all over the world.
The service we were offering was unique and we KNOW that it was both apppreciated and was effective. Significantly only a matter of a few months ago, the Age Concern LGBT Group in Camden had responded to our work by specifically mentioning co-operating with us in a project which aimed to face the challenge of dementia within the LGBT community - that is now lost.
I just dont know what is happening within the Alzheimers Society but what is coming out is not good.
