Kingfisher Dementia Clubs
Welcoming and engaging sessions offering an exciting mix of activities tailored to your interests
About Dementia Fun Clubs
Our Kingfisher clubs offer an exciting mix of activities for people with mild to moderate dementia. The clubs are run by highly trained staff, supported by a team of caring volunteers. Clients can attend without a loved one or carer.
Club sessions take place three days a week (Monday to Wednesday) at the Jubilee Centre in St Albans. Anyone can refer themselves, or a loved one, by sending us the referral form linked below.Kingfisher Club Referral Form
What kind of activities do we offer?
Our Kingfisher clubs offer a wide range of both group and individual activities. We work with you to understand your hobbies and your life story so that we can create activities that centre around your interests. Here are some examples of the activities we do:
- Food tastings
- Poetry readings
- Sing-a-long sessions
- Crafts and carpentry
When and where?
- Location: Jubilee Centre, Catherine Street, St Albans, AL3 5BU
- Days: Monday to Wednesday

Our clubs are for people living with mild to moderate dementia.
You can join the clubs if:
- You do not require personal care whilst at the club
- You are physically mobile, or mobility needs can be supported if possible
- You do not have aggressive or violent tendencies towards others
- You don’t have a tendency to walk with purpose (i.e. you are comfortable staying in the centre for the duration of the club)
If your needs change while you are a member of the club, we will direct you to other services that offer the right support.
