Some are area or county-wide alliances which support a wide range of local communities and in other cases they are stand-alone.

It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition. Whether you attend a face-to-face Information Session or watch the online video, Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help.
