Can you be a friend in 1,000?

Dementia is a rising challenge. By 2021, over a million British people will have dementia; people in your neighbourhood, your church, maybe in your family. Dementia is a condition which impairs people’s ability to think, remember and make choices, often leaving them confused, anxious and vulnerable.

This year’s Greenbelt will see a record-breaking response. Livability is aiming to train 1,000 people to become Dementia Friends. This government-backed scheme to teaches the basics about dementia – what it is, what can be done, and how to be a friend to those who have it.

Will you give us an hour? We’ll give you important information that you can take back home to your family, your street, your church.

We’ll be running the workshop every day at 7:30pm in The Table. Can you be a friend in 1,000?
