Developed in partnership between the Alzheimer's Society, our sessions help to spot and support people who may have dementia.

Our sessions are free of charge and are designed to change people's perceptions of dementia and transform the way people think, act and talk about the condition. 

Sessions have been delivered to staff in GP surgeries, local community councillors, schools, colleges, supermarkets, cafés, Fire and Police Services, and as such, awareness of how to approach and support someone with dementia has improved.


Become a Dementia Friend

Learn more about what it is like to live with dementia and turn that understanding into action.


Volunteer as a Dementia Friend's Champion

Dementia Friends Champions are trained volunteers who encourage others to learn a little bit about dementia. Champions run information sessions in their community and inspire others to help those living with dementia live well.


Get your organisation involved and become dementia friendly 

If you register your organisation with Dementia Friends, you will get access to resources and information aimed at helping members of your organisation understand dementia and how it may affect a person.
