BIADS is a local dementia charity providing advice, support, care and a range of meaningful activities for both people with dementia and their carers.

At our Joseph Exley Centre on Dodworth Road, we have a three person Carer Support team who are available to offer on-going support and advice from the point of diagnosis all the way through the “dementia journey”. They hold specific Carer Support group sessions where carers can meet others in a similar situation and share coping mechanisms and offer each other friendship and support.

We also have a four person activity team who run many different sessions aimed at both couples and also individuals; they include:

  • Activity Group
  • Befriending Services for Carers
  • BIADS' Singers
  • Carer Support Groups
  • Carer Support Service
  • Circle Dancing
  • Group Befriending
  • Gym

  • Party Days
  • Relax and Revive
  • Tea and Toast Saturdays
