The Ilkley group for dementia awareness and support needs more committee members to help spread the load and energise the work it does in the Ilkley area.
There is a monthly support meeting, and at present members need extra hands to develop initiatives to promote dementia awareness. The Ilkley group has a few dementia awareness trainers who offer monthly sessions but the committee would like to do more publicity at events, etc. The time commitment can be as short or as long as individuals wish.
As a Committee member could you help develop dementia awareness, encourage others in the town to get involved, promote dementia training with local businesses. Maybe you have some ideas of your own you would like to see developed.
The Group is constituted, has some funds, and a bank...
Are you a carer or relative of someone with Dementia?
Do you need support?
We are starting a support group, both 1 to 1 and group sessions.
Please get in touch with us via email in the first place.
These are open sessions for anyone interested in learning more about supporting those with dementia.
Sessions are normally held at the Clarke Foley Centre, Cunliffe Road, Ilkley, LS29 9DZ unless otherwise stated.
