About the service

The Young Dementia Leeds service is a partnership between Community Links and Carers Leeds and offers a range of wellbeing, holistic, mutual and peer support, connecting people to groups and activities within their community helping people to live well with dementia.

Our community based service offers 1:1 support or small group activities offering a short break for family and carers.

Carers Leeds provide specialist support for carers of people with dementia, offering carers peer and social groups along with signposting and advice for the families and carers.

The Young Dementia Leeds Hub offers day respite for younger people living with dementia, providing a structured programme of activities, taking a more creative, less traditional approach to day care.

Aims of the service

To ensure younger adults (those aged under 65) living with dementia in Leeds to live as well as possible and benefit from meaningful activity, person-centred care and community involvement.

Our carers support element ensures that family and carers are fully supported, have access to information to help them to continue to care and to have access to regular breaks and social activity.

Eating Well with Dementia Book

Young Dementia Leeds has developed a fantastic recipe book Eating Well with Dementia, which is   available to buy from the Alzheimer’s Society shop here. 

We are incredibly proud of this book, which has been developed with people living with dementia, their clients and carers. The recipes, nutritional advice and adaptations guidance are those actually used by people going through this experience.


Working collaboratively is a key value of Community Links. Brian, a service user at Young Dementia Leeds recently took part in a new recruitment video for the Inspire North group, check it out below!
