Dementia Friendly Support Group


Help us make our U3A a Dementia Friendly organisation

With an ageing population we are all likely sometime in the future to come into contact with friends or family living with dementia. Your Management Committee of Trustees has committed to making Ilkley & District U3A a Dementia Friendly organisation but we need your support to do this.

We aim to:

  • give respect and understanding to those with dementia.
  • raise awareness of dementia among our members
  • reduce the stigma and fear surrounding dementia. 
  • and enable people with dementia, wherever possible, to participate in U3A activities and feel safe in our groups.

We would like you to become a Dementia Friendly member by giving up an hour of your time to come along to one of our Dementia talks. There you will discover how you can make a difference to those living with dementia (and their carers) through having a better understanding of the condition. For details of these talks and any other information, please keep a lookout on 'Newsflash' the website and the CFC noticeboard.

Information on dementia awareness in Ilkley, including a full Directory of Support and Services, can be found by clicking this link to the Dementia Friendly Ilkley Action website.
