The JRF programme, Dementia without Walls finished at the end of 2015 … but its legacy lives on. In this independent website – supported by JRF and other key partners – we will share many inspiring resources: images, videos, stories, blogs, audio diaries, reports and toolkits. The voices and views of people with dementia themselves will resound through every page.
The Life Changes Trust reports on the first six months of its dementia friendly communities programme. There is a lot of useful learning in this report: I was struck by one quote in particular; “Many people who are part of the DFC have spoken about the benefits of meeting with others in a similar situation and sharing their experiences… they also talk about how good it is to be able to re-engage with society and do something positive in the community with their partners, as well as with others.”
