18th February- Dementia Friendly Roundhay



‘Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.’ 1 John 3:18


Our focus is the transformation of our local community, enabling people living with dementia to feel safe, valued and able to enjoy continuing their daily activities. Our goal is to encourage and enable all in our community to be dementia aware.



Our Steering Group includes local interested volunteers and professionals, led by St Edmund’s Roundhay working in partnership with Leeds Older People’s Forum. We offer ‘Dementia Friends’ information sessions locally, including to businesses, voluntary groups and places of worship. We also support enabling people living with dementia to remain independent, improving wellbeing, safety and confidence and reducing isolation.


One success story is a local hairdresser whose business has become Dementia Friendly – she’s gained five new clients!


Praise God for:

  • Generosity of community members in offering time, talents and ‘treasure’ to the project
  • Development of new networks and partnerships, enhancing this ministry
  • New ‘Dementia Champions’
