Leeds Irish Health & Homes are looking at ways of helping Irish people cope better with the practical and emotional challenges of memory loss and seeing whether there are any gaps in current services.

We are running a small research project and want to talk to as many people as we can to get a better understanding of what memory loss means for people of Irish origin.

  •  If you feel you could help us and are: Irish or of Irish heritage?
  • Have personal experience or have friends or family with memory loss?
  • Belong to a community group or association that come into contact with older Irish people and their families?

If you have an interest in helping make services better for people with memory loss please contact Jim Mulhern in confidence, on (0113) 262 5614 or email
