Any project promoting Intergenerational work, actively working with people living with dementia and raising awareness among the younger generation.
Working with Schools, Youth Groups and all Young People is incredibly important. We have had a huge number of examples of really good intergenerational work.
There are 3 main aims of the inter generational work.
- To remove the stigma of dementia in society and achieve better community support and engagement for now and the future, by educating children and young people about the condition
- Provide children and young people with confidence and insight into a widespread issue affecting their lives and communities
- Provide interaction and enrichment between people with dementia and children/young people.
Kent’s Dementia Friendly Awards have been sponsored by businesses across Kent who are members of our Local Dementia Action Alliances and Dementia Friendly Communities
