Learn more about supporting those living with dementia in our corps and communities.

If you are supporting people with dementia in your church community or luncheon club, or you are looking to start a dementia friendly cafe or Singing By Heart group, then these sessions are for you. 

The information session lasts two hours. The first hour is an information session on Dementia Friends, an initiative from Alzheimer’s Society. This is followed by a session considering ministry in the context of dementia.
