Below are our regular events for younger people with dementia and their families and friends to meet with each other.
Some are for people with young onset dementia and some are primarily for family members of younger people. However the groups do not specifically exclude anyone though the purpose of the group influences who attends and the benefits from attending.
Do contact the organiser to check the group is right for you and if you plan to attend one of our groups for the first time, please call the group host in advance so we know to expect you.
Coffee & Chat
Regular relaxed gatherings for people to meet up and share experiences. Held once a month in Wolvercote (Oxford) - contact Deborah Crawshaw.
PACE (Positive Activists Consultants & Educators)
PACE brings together people living with young onset dementia to act as activists, consultants and educators. This monthly group connects people living with young onset dementia who want to improve understanding of, and support for, people with the condition. In past sessions members have listened to visiting speakers, spoken at workshops and conferences, and joined discussion panels. It also provides an opportunity to comment on or put forward suggestions for services or developments within YoungDementia UK and elsewhere. Contact Liz Rose for more information.
