Education, training and awareness
We provide educational talks and workshops on all aspects of dementia, which can be tailored to your requirements. These are aimed at raising awareness and increasing understanding, knowledge and support of the disease.
Dementia Friends Sessions
Our Dementia Friends programme aims to change the way people think, act and talk about dementia. Specially trained Dementia Champions deliver face-to-face awareness sessions to small groups, schools and in the workplace aimed to help people learn about what it is like to live with dementia and asks them to turn that understanding into action by helping others around them. This may be as simple as telling others about Dementia Friends or visiting someone they know living with dementia, every action counts.
Each session includes 5 key messages on dementia as well as activities to enhance people’s understanding of dementia. With increased awareness and further understanding, local people can better support those living with dementia.
