Our new Exeter COSY Routes project is aiming to support the health and wellbeing of the city including dementia-accessible walks. To find out more watch this video and visit our COSY website.

We are currently fund-raising to develop the COSY Routes project. If you would like to help us develop our project please visit our Go Fund Me page. Any donation will be gratefully received.


COSY Routes is supported by Exeter City Council


We believe that a dementia friendly Exeter requires greater community awareness and opportunities to live well with dementia.

We understand that change comes when people commit to practical actions that help build a dementia friendly community.

With over 850,000 people living with a dementia diagnosis in the country and no cure yet, it is vital we continue to consider how as a society we can collaborate and make a difference for those living with the condition and their families.

As an Alliance we value all of our members and supporters across the city and beyond who are behind our mission and make the alliance what it has become today, we thank you all.
