Dementia Friends

Many of our staff, trustees and volunteers have undergone training to become a Dementia Friend. A Dementia Friend learns a little bit more about what it is like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action – from helping someone to find the right bus to spreading the word about dementia on social media. Please click here for more information or call Rosa on 01652 650585.
