People with dementia, carers and support organisations will come together at a cultural event aimed at celebrating Sheffield’s dedication to dementia support.

Sheffield Dementia Action Alliance’s (SDAA) Cultural Dementia City event will deliver a variety of informative, engaging and creative cultural activities that will transform the City Hall Ballroom and the Crucible bar area.
Events include a tea dance, guest speakers, a documentary screening, drama performance and Dementia Friends sessions at Sheffield City Hall.
SDAA coordinators Grace Stead and Lee Pearse, who both cared for family members with dementia, said: “We feel like we understand dementia and more importantly the everyday difficulties and issues that people face. We just want to drive things forward and being carers’ it makes it easier to know what support is really needed.”
