City Wide – fancy becoming a ‘Dementia Friend’?

An initiative supported by the Government which aims to make everyday life better for people with dementia by developing a nationwide network of volunteers with the know-how to help people with dementia feel understood and included in their community. You can register your interest today and be one of the first to hear about when and how you can take the first step to becoming a Dementia Friend. By volunteering at the start, you can help build a network in your local community.
