Leeds DEEP Group is Seeking New Members

/, Older People/Leeds DEEP Group is Seeking New Members

DEEP stands for “Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project”. This project aims to empower people with dementia to make positive changes locally, and to have a stronger voice.

In Leeds we have started a new DEEP group. We meet to share experiences and discuss how we can raise awareness of dementia, and improve local services. This is a great opportunity to make a difference to other local people who are living with dementia. We welcome people living with dementia to join us.

The group is informal and friendly, and everyone gets the chance to speak. It is free to attend. We meet once every six weeks: Fridays 10:15 – 11:45am, West Yorkshire Playhouse.

Upcoming meeting dates are:

  • 18 August
  • 29th September
  • 17 November

If you’d like to attend, you can just pop along or contact Sarah on 0113 244 1697 or email leedsdaa@opforum.org.uk

If you’d like to know more about the group, we are very happy to meet for a coffee, or to speak on the phone. We may be able to cover travel expenses, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
