We are working towards creating a Dementia Friendly Kirklees, this will support those living with dementia to remain living well in Kirklees and to continue accessing their local communities. The Kirklees Dementia Friendly Community Steering Group is open to all in Kirklees to join and support each other in creating change and improvements for those living with dementia in Kirklees. We can improve accessibility, raise awareness and support those with dementia and their carers to be heard and understood!

“I have found the KDH service to be excellent, the support workers have been really helpful and I know there is someone there if I need any help or support. They have provided me with lots of information about other services I can benefit from as and when I need them and I’ve enjoyed the information sessions I’ve attended so far and look forward to attending them in the future.”

This service is supported by Kirklees Council.
