Dementia friendly resources

If you would like to take action to make your organisation or local area more dementia friendly, please take a look at the online information resource on Alzheimer's Society's website. Its purpose is to help groups, businesses and organisations continue to identify practical actions they can take to be more dementia friendly.

We hope the resource will be useful in helping local groups continue to lead and deliver on local plans to improve the quality of life for people affected by dementia.

As well as Alzheimer's Society resources, there are many other fantastic resources to support groups that want to make their community more dementia friendly such as the World Health Organisation's toolkit on Towards a dementia inclusive society and the Age Friendly Cities framework.

The Dementia Friends initiative will continue to run, helping more people to understand dementia, reducing the stigma surrounding the condition and ensuring awareness of dementia is available to everyone. To find out more, please visit
