Are you interested in becoming a Dementia Friend?

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.

Our colleague Dawn, is a trained Dementia Friends Champion volunteer. As a volunteer she runs free 1 hour information sessions where people learn some key messages about dementia and commit to turning understanding into action. In our commitment to support Dawn and the Dementia Friends initiative we are now running regular Dementia Friends training sessions from our offices.

The sessions are open to all and the next session will be at 9.00 am on Friday 17th February.

If you are interested in attending, you can book the session via the Dementia Friends website or alternatively contact us.

If there are several of you who wish to attend a session then it maybe possible to run the training at your offices. Please contact Dawn directly to discuss this.

Further sessions will be arranged, so if you can’t attend on the 17th then please register your interest with us and we will inform you of new dates.
