Dementia Friendly Communities

Closes 29 Feb 2024

Opened 2 Nov 2023

Overview

The Dementia Friendly Partnership was established to provide opportunities for statutory and community organisations to work together to help make Ards and North Down, Lisburn and Castlereagh, Down and the Colin and Greater Dunmurry area more dementia friendly.

A dementia friendly community focuses on reducing the stigma of dementia and is inclusive of those living with dementia diagnosis.

The partnership is made up of representatives from the Alzheimer’s Society, Age NI, Praxis Care, Healthy Living Alliance, Good Morning Colin, Peninsula Healthy Living, County Down Rural Community Network, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust, Ards and North Down Borough Council, Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council and Newry, Mourne and Down District Council.

Why your views matter

The Dementia Friendly Partnership has engaged with those living with dementia to gain a better understanding of the issues important to them. Now, we would like to hear from you! 

Being the carer of a loved one, family member or friend living with dementia, we would like to hear your views and feedback on the issues important to you regarding your caring role.

This survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete. The information you tell us will help us to better understand what support and initiatives are needed to help our communities become more dementia friendly.
