Corner Flag Cafe
The Leeds United Foundation's Corner Flag Cafe at Elland Road is an initiative to support people diagnosed with early dementia and has the full support of The Alzheimer's Society and Peer Support Dementia Services from Leeds City Council.
The cafe acts as a drop in centre and meeting point for tea and coffee as well as the chance to interact with other sufferers and support workers alongside ground tours, video presentations and guest appearances.
Our cafe provides social opportunities and reminiscence activities using club memorabilia, photos, press cuttings and other stimuli to help make lives as pleasant as possible for those living with dementia across our communities.
