A ‘Dementia Friend’ is someone who learns about dementia in order to help their community understand the condition.

The Dementia Friends programme is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the programme to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts. 

For more information and an introductory video visit www.dementiafriends.org.uk 

If you know someone that you think would be well suited to becoming a Dementia Friend, why not let them know?
