    Disability Advice in Bradford have launched a project to get people to talk about their memory problems.

    The scheme called 'Memory Lane' is designed to help bring memory problems out in to the open, and get groups of people together so they can talk about things in a safe environment.

     The disability service have set up a place where people who have been diagnosed with a memory problem can meet.

    It is intended to create a social atmosphere where those who have been diagnosed in the last few years can receive support and advice in a friendly setting.

    Based at just outside Bradford, the project is for people who have been diagnosed in the past two years, to see how other people feel about their recent diagnosis and is intended to help remove the stigma attached to the disability.

    Linda Cleveland, who is helping to run the project, said:

    People sometimes find there is a stigma talking about this, but what we're offering is a chance to make friends and talk about things in a pleasant environment.

    Responding to the DWP Consultation:  Housing Benefit Reform - Supported Housing

    "It was well-run, in a good location, and very useful.  I've only one suggestion; as the session went on it would perhaps have been useful for bullet points of general agreement about what should be in the sector response to be displayed and added to as the session went on, maybe on a flip chart. Regarding your response paper, I particularly like the answer you give to question 9.  In fact the general: "if it ain't broke don't fix it" response could be pushed harder."
