Dementia Friends Initiative
This initiative was formed to not only raise awareness of dementia within the local community but encourage the community to take action and make a difference to people living with dementia.
People with dementia sometimes need a helping hand to go about their daily lives and feel included in their local community. Dementia Friends is giving people an understanding of dementia and the small things that they can do that could make a difference.
With the help of a nationwide network of one million Dementia Friends and Dementia Friends Champions, people are helping to create dementia friendly communities together. From helping someone to find the right bus to spreading the word about dementia on social media, every action counts.
So what’s involved?
Quite simply, an hour of your time – An awareness session is informative and interactive and by asking members of the community to sign up to becoming Dementia Friends, we hope to make our communities more accessible and welcoming to all those living with, or caring for those with, all types of dementia.
Anyone who would like more information about booking an Awareness Session or becoming a Dementia Friend can email Rina Persaud, our Dementia Friends Champion, at firstname.lastname@example.org
