North London Young Onset Dementia Support Group


About the Meetings:

We (“YoYo”) are a self-organised, self-financed group, consisting of people diagnosed with various forms of young onset dementia and their partners/carers. However members do not have to join with a partner. Those in YoYo who have been diagnosed with dementia are at different stages in the progression of their condition.

We generally meet on Fridays and have had a variety of topics and activities; ranging from discussing a London manifesto on dementia, through group cognitive stimulation therapy (CST) to yoga, dance and nature walks. At our meetings we also have guest speakers and discuss new ideas for different activities.

In addition to our regular Friday meetings we get together socially for support group meals. Some of us also attend local dementia friendly events organised by third parties (see below).



The standard meetings are held in the Community Room on the third floor at Crouch End Picturehouse. Other events are at various locactions, such as:
