Proudly supporting our charity partner: Dementia UK

Dementia UK is the specialist dementia nurse charity. Its nurses, known as Admiral Nurses, provide expert support to families affected by all forms of dementia. There is currently no cure for dementia, and families are often left without the support they need. This is where Dementia UK’s Admiral Nurses come in, offering expert, practical advice and compassionate emotional support, from getting a diagnosis to coping with bereavement.

Bringing dementia support Closer to Home

We’ve raised over £700,000 for Dementia UK, helping the charity to launch its clinics service, Closer to Home, bringing expert dementia support closer to families who need it most.

With the help of our funding, Dementia UK is offering virtual clinics appointments by phone or video call for families living with dementia. Throughout 2023, Admiral Nurses will also be offering face to face appointments in select Leeds Building Society branches.

I wanted to say what an amazing service Closer to Home provides. My mum has dementia and I have found the advice and support from Admiral Nurses tremendously helpful - both in terms of compassionate listening and useful practical ideas. It is very reassuring to know this service is available and I would wholeheartedly recommend it.
