New College Dementia Friends

Our Director Jenny has recently delivered a  Dementia session to a group of 25 students from New College, Telford who became “Dementia Friends”, as part of a campaign to tackle the stigma and lack of understanding around the condition.  Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia.  It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, talks and acts about the condition.  The charity wants there to be four million Dementia Friends with the know-how to help people with dementia feel understood and included in their community. 

Anyone interested in supporting the campaign should go to dementiafriends.org.uk or if you would like Jenny to deliver a free information session to your group or workplace then please email jenny.warren@homeinstead.co.uk
