Our tenants welcome visitors from across Shropshire and Telford. Memebrs of our local community often call into the building. We have an array of support groups meeting within the premises.We provide individual one to one sessions with family members caring for someone with dementia

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

We would like to ensure our building is more dementia friendly. We want to make better signage.

We would like to provide dementia friends training to our staff team and other tenants within the building.
