2 million Dementia Friends

Today we recieved feedback that a campaign Faringdon Town Council took part in has reach 2 million Dementia Friends! That’s 2 million people across the country who are taking action to help people affected by dementia.

Faringdon Town Council Staff and Councillors doing our Dementia Friends Training back in March

Dementia Friends was launched in 2013 to tackle the stigma and lack of understanding which means that many people with the condition can face social exclusion. Today, it has become the UK’s biggest ever social movement with one in every 30 people in England, Northern Ireland and Wales involved.

But there is still more work to do. We need you to keep spreading the word about Dementia Friends and encourage your friends and family to join. Together we can end the stigma around dementia once and for all.

Join in the celebrations and tell everyone you know about Dementia Friends on social media using #DementiaFriends
