Dementia Advice Sheffield 

Welcome to the central service page for our brand new service, Dementia Advice Sheffield. From October 1st 2019, this service will offer specialist dementia guidance, support & training to professionals and volunteers working with people who have dementia & their families and carers. It's purpose is to support professionals and volunteers across the city to be dementia friendly.

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Enrichment for the Elderly who will be developing training and workshops which will be open to local professionals such as voluntary sector staff, libraries, and housing officers, to increase their knowledge of dementia, with the aim of making Sheffield a truly dementia-friendly city.

This non-clinical service isn’t a public-facing helpline, as it is being created specifically for professionals, by which we mean any staff, workers and volunteers working with people living with dementia and their families, even though they may not actually see themselves as being professionals within dementia care and support.

We do however still offer many services for people living with dementia and their families, such as our Wellbeing CentreDementia cafes and Independent Living Coordination services.
