Dementia Friendly Community

Following the launch of the Benfieldside, Blackhill, Bridgehill and Shotley Bridge Community Partnership (BBB & SB) project to become a Dementia Friendly Community (DFC) we are keen to help individuals, groups and businesses understand more about the effects of dementia on individuals, and ways that they can help to support those living with dementia in the community.

The BBB & SB are offering FREE information sessions led by a volunteer Dementia Friends Champion, and those completing the session will become "Dementia Friends". The sessions last 1 hour and are informal, there are no "tests" and the aim is simply a greater understanding of dementia.
