Looking to the future
Beyond the nightmare of Covid-19 and lockdown, we are preparing for the very happy day when we re-open our doors to our club members living with dementia and resume our transformative therapeutic work with them. Equally, we look forward to seeing those amazing family carers and helping them as we move out of this difficult time.
The moment the clubs closed down, Daybreak suffered a financial blow. In order to re-open those doors, we need to launch a short-term appeal to ensure we are in a good position to resume our vital work.
We need your help to make sure that we are here when the time comes to provide support for our club members, who are among the most vulnerable people in society.
Total raised so far £32,876.65 including gift aid – Thank you

Please note: During this lockdown, our care staff are working flat out to support our beneficiaries remotely.

The work of our clubs
Daybreak runs three day centres or clubs in Oxfordshire, providing care and support to help people live well with dementia. They are Rosewood in Greater Leys, Lilacs in Kidlington and Limes in North Oxford.
Dementia is incurable but not untreatable and day club attendance is one of the few recommended treatments. At Daybreak, we believe that with the best care and support people can live well with dementia. Our aims are to help maintain skills and abilities, to provide enjoyment and companionship, and to allow family carers a break from their care-giving responsibilities.
For a significant number of our club members, we provide the only time they leave their homes each week and the only significant social interaction.
Daybreak also runs carer support groups, which provide support, advice and guidance.
