Spare Tyre is delighted to be part of a ground-breaking new partnership of organisations working to bring quality arts to people aged 60+ and people living with dementias in Haringey

In our role as dementia arts specialists we are embedding creative practice into everyday activities at the Haynes Day Centre as part of the Together project. Funded by City Bridge Trust and led by Jacksons Lane, other project partners are Homes for Haringey, Haringey Dementia Hub, and Haringey Public Health.

Together is an ambitious and innovative project, Haringey’s diverse ageing community has many distinct needs. Together unites partners from across the local authority, housing, voluntary and arts sectors to devise a new way of working. 

Spare Tyre is a leader in the field of dementia arts, bringing a wealth of experience of engaging with people living with dementias and their carers.

This project began October 2017 and continues until 2019. 

This project is all about bringing people from different sectors together, putting wellbeing at the heart of everything we do, and working at a very local level. The arts have the power to make these connections, creating real social change. We’ve worked with people with dementia and carers since 2010, and this project is another exciting step forward for us in developing this work.
