All of the Luton advocates have attended an information session on Dementia facilitiated by The Alzheimer's Society which now makes us all ‘Dementia Friends’. As a result of this information session we were invited to become Dementia Champions to enable us to deliver the session and create more Dementia Friends around the county.

The overall aim of this project is to raise awareness of this awful disease and ultimately remove the stigma surrounding it so that the wider community have a better understanding of how to support someone living with Dementia.

We now have one Advocate and our Community Development Worker who have attended the induction and are now able to start delivering the information sessions.
