Umbrella Dementia Cafés – Improving the lives of people with dementia in our community



or donate Monthly

* Umbrella Dementia cafés Ltd (UDC) is a registered Health Promotion Charity with deductible gift recipient (DGR) and registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission. Every donation over $2 is tax deductible.

Because of you, your donations allowed us to host over 310 cafes including 175 online cafés throughout Victoria’s two years of COVID-19 lockdowns.  Our groups are fully vaccinated and we re-opened all five of our cafes, at full capacity, in February 2022.

Because of you, we got everyone online and using zoom!

Because of you, in March 2021 we launched two Grade 5 Intergenerational Programs at Blackburn Primary School and Eastbourne Primary School teaching 110 students about dementia.

Because of you, our carers enjoy the benefit of professional dementia resources and a social worker at every cafe to support them in their most difficult moments.

Because of you, every café has the most beautiful, unique and tailor-made programs.

Because of you, our families, couples and individuals are more resilient, connected and more empowered to stay at home longer.

And, because of you, our cafés will continue after these our lockdowns periods!

Now, over the next 12 months, we need you more than ever to connect with as many people and their carers living with dementia as possible.

We can continue this work, because of you. Donate today.

Every $2 donated is a hot cuppa for a person and their partner living with dementia.
Every $50 provides a social worker at every café.
Every $100 pays for a meaningful activity at a café.
Every $1000 pays for a café’s room hire for a whole year.

$10,000 supports a whole cafe for a full 12 months.
