The team at Stoke-on-Trent City Council have complied a directory of services within Staffordshire as well as nationally and online. The directory is a great source of information featuring organisations who can help with a whole range of issues linked to dementia as well as those who can provide information on support services available to you. 


The directory contains details on where to seek help and advice with such matters including specialist dementia advice and advocacy, carers services, financial and legal advice as well as home services and much more. We think this information will be of great use to you so we are pleased to be able to share this with you.
