How can we make our cities dementia friendly? Sharing the learning from Bradford and York

Dementia friendly communities (DFCs) aim to be accessible, inclusive, welcoming and supportive to those affected by dementia. This enables them to contribute to, and participate in, mainstream society.

More than 80 places across the UK are now working towards becoming more dementia friendly, with similar movements gaining ground overseas.

This paper by the JRF contributes to the emerging evidence base by drawing out the key messages from independent evaluations of their DFC programmes in Bradford and York (see the two separate entries on this Housing LIN webpage).
