About the event

Join us at Bell House to hear Michael Verde, founder of the Memory Bridge initiative, speak about a different way of thinking about dementia and communicating with those who have dementia.

Michael will explore how we create a society where people with dementia feel connected and valued and those concerned about them feel comfortable and confident in maintaining these important relationships.

Bursary tickets are available – please email for more information.

More about St Christopher's education

St Christopher’s Education Centre and VAT charges

At St Christopher's, a registered charity, it is important for us to maximise any surpluses to reinvest in the objectives of the charity.

Unfortunately, the manner in which we undertake our training currently means we are not able to invest as much of our surplus as possible, therefore from the 1 December 2017, St Christopher’s Education Centre will charge VAT at the standard rate on our training courses, the reason for this change in pricing is twofold:

i) We want to be able to reinvest any surpluses made from training back into all of our charitable objectives rather than only Education

ii) We want to be able to reclaim the VAT on costs relating to developing and running the training courses
