Warwickshire’s 10,000 Dementia Friends Challenge – a call to action!

Warwickshire now has over 7,000 Dementia Friends, which is a huge achievement.  But we still need your support to reach our target of 10,000 Dementia Friends in Warwickshire by the end of June.

Please help us to create a more Dementia Friendly Warwickshire and become a Dementia Friend today! If you are already a Dementia Friend, you could encourage someone else to get involved.

It takes just five minutes to become a Dementia Friend; just follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to https://www.dementiafriends.org.uk/
  2. Go to ‘Register and watch the video’
  3. Enter your details on the website
  4. Watch the video
  5. Add your address and a Dementia Friend badge and Little Book of Friendship will then be sent through the post.

It’s as simple as that – become a Dementia Friend today!

If you use Twitter, please let us know that you have got involved:

Sessions last up to one hour. If you would like to enquire about holding a session for people you know (provided they are based in Coventry or Warwickshire), please contact us on dementiapartnership at warwickshire.gov.uk
