Joanna Parkin recently became a Dementia Friends Champion, meaning she is able to deliver Dementia Friends information sessions on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Society.  The Dementia Friends programme is a social action movement designed to change the way we act, think and talk about dementia.

“I have previously attended a Dementia Friends Information Session and found it really interesting and helpful with my understanding of people who are living with dementia. I wanted to join my colleague Beckie Head in becoming a Champion and keep spreading the word”, says Joanna.

Information sessions can be run for groups of 5 people upwards.  Should you or your business be interested in hosting a free session, please contact Joanna on 01543 440308.
