Dementia Friends is about giving more people an understanding of dementia and the small things that could make a difference to people living in their community.

Free course.

There are currently 2.3 million Dementia Friends in the U.K. with the know-how to help people with dementia feel understood and included in their community. The Dementia Friends initiative was fully launch in mid-February 2013 after the initial announcement in November 2012.

Dementia Friends Champions are volunteers who talk to people about being a Dementia Friend in their communities after attending a training course and receiving ongoing support.  A Dementia Friend learns a little bit more about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action - anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend.

Dementia Friends is about giving more people an understanding of dementia and the small things that could make a difference to people living in their community. It makes such a huge difference to people with dementia if those around them know what dementia is and how it might affect them.

Course objectives: 

  • Find out about the Dementia Friends Scheme and how to become a Dementia Friend
  • Consider how to review your delivery environment and identify how age/dementia friendly it is
  • Enable people with dementia to live well in their community
