Are you 65 or under & living with, or affected by young onset dementia or memory problems?
If so, we have a new service created specifically to support you and others affected by the condition in Sheffield.
The Young Onset Hub (YOH) is a new service delivered by Age UK Sheffield and funded by Sheffield City Council. We aim to connect & support you after receiving a diagnosis.
The Hub has been, and will continue to be shaped and informed by people living with, or affected by young onset dementia (the experts!) because it aims to provide support that will be as helpful as possible and make a difference to you.

YOH Currently Offers:

  • A Monthly peer-support group
  • A Monthly friends and family support group

Soon, YOH will also offer:

  • A Peer-led course
  • Information packs & online platform
  • We are creating packs and an online platform to bring you relevant information and support. We can give you details on our information and advice service.

How can I get in contact?
To find out more about the service and access details for joining our support groups, please email youngdementia@ageuksheffield.org.uk
Or, call 0114 250 2850.
The team will contact you to introduce themselves, tell you about what YOH can offer and see if we can support you in any other way. Anyone is welcome to contact us & we look forward to hearing from you.
