  1. Aspire Creating Communities is an Occupational Therapy based, person-focused, dementia friendly service, centred around building relationships with group attendees.

    We started just over eight years ago and became a charity in December 2019. Our beneficiaries are over 55s who come to our sessions for fun, laughter and friendship, leaving with this and much more.

    We have planned programmes of events including guest speakers, local authors, storytellers, activities with community artists, local history talks and much more! All welcome for a fresh hot drink and a biscuit, and great opportunities for friendship and informal support.

    These sessions are accessible to all, with affordability not being a barrier although we do ask for a small donation. Central to our approach is strong relationships with beneficiaries, their families, and our community.

    Please see our website for more details or our Facebook https://www.facebook.com/AspireCreatingCommunities (there is a link under Further Information.)

    We currently have groups in:
    Almondbury,
    Ashbrow,
    Crosland Moor,
    Dalton,
    Greenhead,
    Newsome
    Birkby Croft

    Please see the Groups section of our website for latest details, meeting times and how to join.
