This is a briefing on Dementia-Friendly Communities and what they mean for local government.

The briefing covers:

What is meant by the term ‘Dementia-Friendly Communities’ and why they are important

What role Local Authorities can play in promoting and supporting Dementia-Friendly Communities

Some national and international examples of progress in creating Dementia-Friendly Communities.

The briefing may be of use to councillors and council officers in all tiers of councils working to support people with dementia and their carers, and to create accessible, inclusive places. It may be of particular interest to those who can influence local partners to maximise support for people with dementia and for members of health and wellbeing boards.
