Afghanaid is a British humanitarian and development organisation. For thirty-five years, our dedicated personnel have worked with millions of deprived, excluded and vulnerable families in some of the poorest and most remote communities in Afghanistan.

To reduce isolation and loneliness 2. To promote intergenerational understanding 3. To improve the quality of life and care for older people and those with dementia 4. To support carers to maintain their own health and wellbeing Our values Age Exchange strives to be person-centred, creative, open and inclusive in all that we do, including activity groups for people with dementia and their carers where they can access support; and community groups for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy physical activity, art, languages and short educational courses. We believe that focusing on the individual using reminiscence-based practices in dementia care, their stories and experiences are the cornerstone of reducing loneliness, making way to improving wellbeing. We want to create an environment where everyone feels valued and included. We recognise that differences exist and thus respond to individual need.
