This evaluation of the Bradford Dementia Friendly Communities Programme by the JRF was carried out to help determine how the development of and support for dementia friendly communities can be enhanced to inform future work and share learning with other organisations? In particular, it focussed on:
- the distinctive features of the Bradford Dementia Friendly Communities Programme, which reflect the diverse geography and culture of the district;
- how people with dementia can influence what a dementia friendly Bradford should be like;
- the main challenges which will need to be addressed to ensure that progress continues; and
- the learning for others who are trying to build dementia friendly communities.
