Dementia Friends

Will you become a dementia friend?

The Government has launched a national initiative to raise the awareness of dementia and set a target of reaching 1 million dementia friends by 2014.

To become a dementia friend is easy; you just need to attend one of the Dementia Friend sessions that we will be provide as part of the dementia awareness events starting soon.

Each session will be free, take about 45 minutes and we explain a little bit about what dementia is, how it can affect someone and what we can all do through little actions to create a dementia friendly community together. The sessions will be open to everyone aged 14 years and over. Details about the dementia friend’s sessions and how to book your place will be detailed on here soon.

If you would like us to provide a dementia session to your club, group, organisation or in your workplace please contact dementiasupport@southend.gov.uk or telephone 01702 215008 ext 5316.
