IMPORTANT: Due to the Coronavirus and the need to social distance, Parson Cross Forum has had to cancel all groups & activities until further notice and please note that other parts of our website may not be up to date.
For us to continue to support our members we have changed the way we are working.
But if you need to contact us, all our contact details are all still the same:
- For our Dementia Cafes and JABADAO group members, we are now delivering 3 Memory Cafes per week online via the Zoom app. This allows our members to keep in touch and share peer support. To find out how to join us give us a call on 0114 3279727.
- We are also offering telephone support to our members who are living with dementia and their carers and our most vulnerable members including those with underlying medical conditions and people who are having to self-isolate, but if you need to call us or you need to talk, please get in touch, we are here to help.
- For other support needs (practical or otherwise), particularly from those required to self-isolate or anyone in the at-risk groups including the elderly, you can contact us using the details above.

For 19 years now, The Parson Cross Community Development Forum has worked to improve conditions and lead the regeneration of the Parson Cross community by giving local people a voice.
The Forum also provides educational and recreational programmes for all ages and abilities at minimal costs in an attempt to improve the physical and mental health and welfare of those in the community and to combat marginalisation.
No matter what your reason for visiting the Parson Cross Forum, our friendly and welcoming staff are happy to assist you in any way they can, or signpost you to organisations which would better suit your needs. The staff at the Forum will even contact them for you if you want.
The Forum staff are here to help, will not to judge and everyone who comes to the Forum receives the same friendly, helpful service.
Drop in and have a chat – we’d like to get to know you!
