  1. Support groups for people with dementia and their carers. St. Andrews Support Group is a voluntary run organisation consisting of 2 weekly activity groups, a monthly Luncheon Club, and a monthly Carers Friendship Group.

    The Happy Memories Group and The Thursday Friends Group are weekly activity groups for people with a dementia type illness and their carers. They are active, lively groups, with activities designed to stimulate and exercise both body and mind. Carers have a choice of staying for the session or having a break for the session. There is a charge per session which include a sandwich, tea or coffee, cakes and biscuits.

    The Happy Memories Group meets:

    2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month at St Andrews Church, Old Bank Road. Mirfield. 12noon to 3.30pm.

    2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month at St Paulinus Church Hall, High Street, Westtown, Dewsbury 12noon to 3.30pm.

    The Luncheon Club meets every second Monday in the month at Healds Hall, Liversedge. Transport can be arranged if needed. This group allows carers and people with dementia to meet and talk over lunch with others in the same situation in a social environment.

    The Carers Friendship Group meets at St Andrews Church Mirfield every fourth Monday in the month from 1.30pm to 3.30pm. The Group provides help and information on dementia, and on services, benefits and other resources available for people with dementia and their carers. Meetings can involve speakers from the local community, either professional or of a social nature. Refreshments are provided and transport can be arranged if needed.
