Staff and Pupils at Christ College Become Dementia Friends

Staff and pupils at Christ College, Brecon, have shown their support for Brecon Dementia Friendly Community initiative by hosting a Dementia Friends session and becoming Dementia Friends.  In a continuation of her schools programme, Dementia Champion Joan Brown visited Christ College and delivered the session to Year 7 and 8 pupils and three of their teachers.  Further sessions for Year 9 pupils, further teachers and Sixth Form pupils are in the pipeline.  Joan reports that the sessions went very well with pupils and teachers really engaging and showing a genuine commitment to turn understanding into action.  Over the course of her two days at the school Joan recruited 60 new Dementia Friends!
