In April 2015, the Life Changes Trust invested £3.4 million in fourteen dementia friendly communities across Scotland, over a period of three years. These communities are all very different. Some are geographical communities, that is, they relate to a specific location like West Dunbartonshire or Dumfries and Galloway. Others are communities of interest that bring people together because they are interested in similar activities, for example, sport, art or walking outdoors.
This second report has been compiled using evidence gathered from the first year’s monitoring and evaluation reports of the communities.
