The organisation, Dementia Matters in Powys, has grown out of a grass roots initiative, the Brecon Area Dementia Friendly Community. Led by community volunteers, the project’s strength lies in its partnership and facilitative approach; seeking out and sharing good practice, networking and linking with other organisations and agencies, highlighting potential and resources, and within all of this giving a voice to those living with dementia so all outcomes are based on identified need.  Fundamental to this way of working is the importance of doing things ‘with’ people rather than ‘for’ them, thus creating a community that respects, values and empowers those living with dementia and their carers, promoting independence and choice.
