Dementia Friendly Winchester
Helping to make Winchester a Dementia-Friendly city
Dementia Friendly Winchester is run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about raising awareness of dementia.
We want to ensure that people with dementia can lead a good life in Winchester and are met with understanding and support when they are out and about in the city.
In October 2014 Winchester became the first city to launch a dementia friendly high street. Many shops and organisations have committed to becoming dementia friendly and staff have attended dementia awareness sessions.
We want to do more to help support people with dementia and their loved ones so that we achieve our aim of making our city one of the best places to live. Please get in touch if you have any ideas and/or you wish to join us. People affected by dementia are particularly welcome to join.
