We are a small voluntary group of local people who:
Want Ilkley to become a Dementia Friendly Town in which people living with dementia and their carers feel happy to be a part of, know they can access the support they need and participate in activities which are meaningful to them, as long as possible
Aim to reduce the stigma and raise understanding of dementia through awareness-raising activities, including Dementia Friends sessions
Reduce the fear surrounding dementia so more people living with dementia are diagnosed earlier so they can receive the support they need and improve the quality of their lives
To do this, we need to bring together the whole Town in making a difference to those with living with dementia, including families and carers.
If you would like to join us in our aims please contact us with your details, we need all sorts of help, however much or little time you have we can use your support if we are to make Ilkley a much more dementia-friendly community.
