The MindCare Young Onset Dementia Activists group (YODA) is for anyone in the London boroughs of Bromley, Lambeth, Lewisham, Greenwich and Southwark who has developed dementia before the age of 65.
Family and friends who are carers are also welcome.

The group meets at St John Church, in Beckenham, every Friday from 11am to 1pm. Members support each other and share experiences, which have included dancing, bowling, arts and craft, singing and outings. They are also involved in fundraising and raising awareness of young onset dementia.

YODA is growing and, as of February 2024 had 25 regular members.
