If you are touched by dementia or would just like to know more, then this website is for you.


Dementia Friendly Vale is a network of individuals, groups and organisations raising awareness and increasing the support of people living with dementia and their carers in and through their local communities across the Vale of Glamorgan.


This work includes running groups, activities and events in partnership with local organisations, making information available about local and national support for dementia and working with local businesses so people affected by dementia can be confident their needs will be understood and supported when they visit.


Communities are becoming Dementia Friendly as a result, enabling people affected by dementia to maintain their independence, interests and skills by remaining connected to their local community without fear or stigma at the time it’s needed most. Further information about Dementia Friendly Communities can be found on the Alzheimer's website.

the dementia

Dementia is probably the biggest health and social care crisis facing our society today. Someone develops the condition every three minutes and too many people are having to face this alone.

More than 850,000 people in the UK are believed to be living with Dementia, including over 6000 in Cardiff & The Vale.

Local activities

Many communities in the Vale have activities for those with dementia and their carers. Find out what is available near you by clicking on the button below.

Alun Cairns MP became a 'trained' Dementia Champion some years ago and in conjunction with The Alzheimer’s Society, he will be hosting a Dementia Friendly Information session in Llantwit Major on Thurs 13th October from 11am – Midday at the Llantonian Hall. 

This is designed to support those in the Vale living with dementia and their families. The workshop will focus on developing greater awareness and understanding of dementia so you can best support and take action on behalf of people affected by dementia in the community. 

It will be interactive with the opportunity to ask questions. The workshop is free but spaces are limited, so please pre-book your place by emailing alun.cairns.mp@parliament.uk  

Feedback from previous attendees has been excellent. If you would like to know more, please get in touch with Alun Cairns
