We are a Dementia Friendly organisation.
We are proud to be supporting Dementia Awareness Week, which runs between 17th - 23rd May. Our staff will be ditching their every-day office wear on Friday to don Denim For Dementia, raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
If you want to support this initiative, please visit their Just Giving webpage here
If you want to learn more about Dementia Awareness Week please visit Alzheimers webpages or use the social media hashtag #DAW2016.
There's also lots of other local events being run in and around Doncaster raising awareness of dementia this week. If you want to download the local Dementia Awareness Week Activity Programme, please visit http://www.doncaster.gov.uk/dementia
You can also help ‘confront dementia’ by becoming a Dementia Friend http://bit.ly/DFriends but whatever you do, please take a few minutes to learn a little more about dementia and the effect it has on our local community.
We currently have seven dementia champions, Grant Lockett, Louise Robson, Geraldine Byrne, Carol Higgins, Heather Saunders, Tom Cunningham, Alison Alcock with more dementia friends ready to progress to champions once they have completed the training.
