Dementia Awareness Event

DFP Event 002 Joanna Hill and Sue Sayers are leading on a Clinical Commissioning Group funded project to help the Community & Voluntary Sector become more Dementia friendly.

Thursday 27th March saw representatives from community groups and voluntary organisations with an interest in this topic come together at a participatory event. After a selection of speakers and an opportunity to experience what it might be like to have dementia, they took part in a workshop to begin to design a toolkit that groups can use to find practical ways to support those with dementia and memory loss and their carers.

Participants reported that they found the event interesting, useful and a good opportunity to network and were encouraged that awareness of dementia was being raised.’
