Any project Initiated and/or supported by members of the local community, including those living with dementia, in order to benefit those living with dementia, their family and/or carers
Dementia is more than just a health or social care issue, people with dementia want to live their lives as part of their community.
Its down to us as members of the community to understand how we can all best become more inclusive and help those living with dementia, this involves all aspects of community life from hobbies to shopping, sports leisure and culture. Think of what we all do and enjoy , why should anyone living with dementia be any different.
This award was designed to celebrate those community initiatives which are encouraging communities to work together with professionals or other groups to best assist those living with dementia
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
