Together Dementia Support is a Manchester-based charity that provides high-quality activity and social groups for people in Manchester who are living with dementia; and peer group meetings and support to their carers.

The groups are run by a mix of paid staff and volunteers and they reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.
The services Together Dementia Support provide and those they aim to provide are greatly influenced and shaped by the users of those services and by conversations and collaborations with other community groups. Together Dementia Support very much aim to complement existing provision in the areas they serve whilst being innovative and seeking out new opportunities for their members to try new activities.
