About this cause

Our charity changes the way people in Keighley and the surrounding area think, talk and act about dementia. We run activities and organise events for people living with dementia and their carers, as well as an information and support centre for anyone needing to know more about the illness. We help local businesses and organisations to become more dementia friendly via our Recognition Award Scheme.

How this cause brings people in the community together

The activities, groups and resources provide opportunities for people to meet others in similar situations, to take part in fun activities and to socialise. Since lockdown and local restrictions have been in place, opportunities to socialise has impacted on people living with dementia and their carers and this provision will provide much needed support.
