Become a Dementia Friend

What is this?


A Dementia Friend is someone who learns about dementia so they can help their community.  Dementia Friends help people living with dementia by taking actions. These actions don't have to be big - it can be as simple as being patient in a shop queue to visiting someone you know with dementia. Some Dementia Friends also get involved in volunteering or campaigning but you don't have to.  

Anyone can be a Dementia Friend and it is really easy to join.

How long does it take?

You can choose how to join.  You can watch the introductory video which takes just 5 minutes or you can join a live virtual session which takes about 45 minutes.  The schedule for these is on the Dementia Friends website.  


The course is free.
