To ensure that our customers stay safe and well during this difficult time, there will be no home visits. All interviews will be conducted via video until further notice. Please ask if you need advice about how to do this, it's a fantastic way to beat loneliness and keep in touch whilst you are shut away indoors. Above all, I hope you all stay positive and well.

About Memorophilia CIC
Memorophilia CIC (Community Interest Company) is a social enterprise, based in Cornwall, UK. It has been set up to support those in society who could be at risk of forgetting their own story. It provides a chance to pass memories down to younger generations so they will never be lost in time.
The aim is to address loneliness by bringing regular, unhurried companionship to people who may find it useful to talk about their memories, through weekly visits. I will to listen to your stories and anecdotes and write them down. If you choose to, I can make them into a beautifully edited life story book for you to keep.
