Our Aim

ACC aims to help keep people living with dementia in their own homes and maintain independence for as long as possible. ACC adopts a person-centered approach, connecting with others, building, and maintaining relationships, embarrassing uniqueness and providing a safe supportive environment with high levels of dignity and respect.

Funded by the Lottery Community Fund

We are funded by the Lottery Community Fund to deliver this free service to people living with dementia in The Causeway Coast and Glens Area. The Community fund have provided funding for us for the last 3 years and we have just received news in March 24 that our application for funding has been successful and they will fund us for a further 3 years. This funding is vital to us and without the support from the Lottery we would be unable to continue providing this service to our community.


These are the three keys’ aspects to the community fund application.


  1. Bring people together and build strong relationships in and across communities
  2. Improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
  3. Help more people to reach their potential, by supporting them at the earliest possible stage.
