About us

Dementia Forward is the leading dementia charity for York and North Yorkshire. We provide support, advice and information to anybody affected by dementia across the county, and have developed a comprehensive range of services; all with people living with dementia at their heart. Our aim is to knit dementia support into the community, so that people can continue to live well for longer.

Dementia in some way affects more than 50% of the UK public*. In the face of this startling statistic, we want to increase awareness and understanding, and provide free, confidential advice and support, so that no-one has to face dementia alone.

To find out more about how we are making a difference, call our helpline on 03300 578592 or visit
