Code of practice for the recognition of dementia-friendly communities in England

This code of practice from the British Standards Institute and Alzheimer's Society aims to help support existing communities and to inspire more areas to get involved in the development of dementia-friendly communities.

It provides recommendations on:

  • Who needs to be involved in setting up a dementia-friendly community
  • Aims that should be central to all dementia-friendly communities
  • Areas to focus on and the processes needed for your dementia-friendly community to operate successfully
  • The positive changes for people with dementia that we would expect to see from a dementia-friendly community
