About this cause

We're a group who aim to make Ilkley a more dementia-friendly community. We offer dementia friends training to all for free. We hold information events, have a bi-monthly newsletter and local information booklet. We also run meetings for carers, to support anyone affected by a person living with dementia. Our new venture is to encourage local businesses to become dementia friendly.

How this cause brings people in the community together

The project will encourage and enable those affected by dementia to try activities. They will learn how to cope and encourage individuals to support each other. It will also provide a space for volunteers to answer questions and signpost to any help they may need. This could affect anybody, at any age, not just the elderly.
