Sheffield Dementia Strategy Commitments

There are approximately 7,000 people currently living with dementia in Sheffield: that’s just over 1% of the whole of the city’s population. Organisations across the city are working together to improve the care and support for people of all ages living with - or caring for those living with - dementia in Sheffield.

The organisations that have been working in partnership are Sheffield City Council, NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield Health and Social Care Foundation Trust, South Yorkshire Housing Association, Sheffield Dementia Action Alliance, Age UK Sheffield, Alzheimer's Society, and St Luke's. Partners would also like to acknowledge the important contribution of the following organisations in influencing the discussions and feedback that have informed this document: SHINDIG, Burton Street Foundation, Healthwatch Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University, University of Sheffield, Young Dementia UK, Voluntary Action Sheffield and ‘Our Place’ (Alzheimer’s Society).

The strategy aims to make sure that people with dementia of all ages and their families are supported to live to their full potential. The Strategy includes 13 commitments which describe how we will do this in Sheffield. These commitments were developed together by people living with dementia, their families, and the organisations working to support them. 

There have been a number of improvements made to dementia services over the last year – many of these have been in response to the feedback that we received from people and organisations as part of the consultation on the strategy.
