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.
