Our Dementia Friends Champions have now delivered over 100 Dementia Friends Sessions in the community, and enlisted over 1500 new Dementia Friends!
Our newest Dementia Friends signed up following a Dementia Friends Session in Erwood, delivered by Dementia Champion Joan Brown. The session was attended by a local community group made up of senior citizens. Joan said "Everyone who came was really engaged and enthusiastic and genuinely committed to turning their newfound knowledge into action." Joan was delighted to report that she has made 29 new Dementia Friends.
As well as pledging their support, the group kindly made a donation of £20.00 to support the work of Brecon Dementia Friendly Community.
The community group is pictured below.
