About the project

Gloriously Us is a project entirely run by volunteers and supported by staff from the Aylesbury office of Alzheimer’s Society. Its aim is to work across Buckinghamshire bringing the dementia community together through poetry.

The dementia community includes those diagnosed with dementia, their carers and anyone else with a connection to dementia – such as careworkers, social service professionals and the medical profession.

Gloriously us has held a number of successful poetry workshops has just published a book of the resulting poems, along with photographs taken by a former carer. We also offer a poetry toolkit for use within the dementia community in return for a small donation.
