Dementia Friendly Communities

People living with dementia face challenges to remain independent and engaged in their communities.

This requires others to understand those challenges and for policymakers, providers and commissioners to ensure they have opportunities to influence policies, facilities and services.

The resources listed below include good practice examples and suggestions about how the social and physical environment can be developed to support and include people living with dementia. The Prime Minister's Challenge on Dementia has a champion group on dementia friendly communities. You can find detail of its work programme here (opens new window).
