We're proud to be supporting Dementia Friends, an Alzheimer's Society initiative that is helping to change people’s perceptions of dementia.
With over 2.5 million supports, Dementia Friends is transforming the way we as a society thinks, acts and talks about dementia. Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends programme to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.
How you can get involved
