Become a Dementia Friend

It is easy to become a Dementia Friend – you can:

- Join a face-to-face session– You can also become a Dementia Friend by attending an information session held in your area. Everyone who attends an information session and wants to become a Dementia Friend will get a Dementia Friends badge and information card.
- Organise a group / team session. You could organise a Dementia Friends Information session as part of a regular meeting or arrange a special one off session. Dementia Friends Information Sessions last for one hour. If you would like to find out more about arranging a session for a group please email:Keeley.Waldron@alzheimers.org.uk.
