Education, Training & 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.
The 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.
For local companies, organisations, schools or colleges who may want a more in-depth session or a specific focus we are happy to tailor a session to meet those needs.
