Dementia-Friendly Communities is an initiative which aims to support local communities to work together and help local people living with dementia and memory impairments.

This will be achieved through increased public awareness and understanding of the condition and ensuring that services and facilities are accessible to all.

Dementia and memory impairments affect a person's ability to continue doing the things most of us take for granted such as shopping, banking, eating out, driving and meeting friends. However, with a little help and support they can remain independent, active members of their communities for longer.

The toolkit provides information and guidance on how to develop and implement Dementia-Friendly Communities.
