Richmondshire District Council

Richmondshire's Dementia Action Alliance group is working towards the district becoming a dementia-friendly community.

The steering group meets once a month and is available to offer support and advice to any organisations or businesses that would like to become dementia friendly.

It can also provide awareness-raising sessions for you, your employees and volunteers.
