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 dementiaforward.org.uk

Stray Ferret Christmas Appeal

Don't let people living with dementia in the Harrogate district feel isolated and alone in their own homes this winter.

We have a £30,000 target to fund a minibus for local charity Dementia Forward. The minibus will collect people from the district affected by dementia, bring them to social events, and to enjoy good company. Keeping socially and physically active has been proven to reduce the effects of dementia.

Many of us will know someone affected by dementia. Dementia can rob people of their memories, and make it difficult to join in with their families at this time of year, but with the right care and support we can make a difference.

Please donate to our appeal. Dementia is 24/7, let's not forget those who need our help this Christmas.

The Stray Ferret Christmas Appeal has been kindly sponsored by Vida Healthcare.
