Dementia Friendly Communities

Rights, Inclusion and Diversity – at the heart of Dementia Friendly Communities
Journal of Dementia Care Conference
in association with Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Alzheimer’s Society

The second Dementia Friendly Communities Conference organised by The Journal of Dementia Care took place on 7th July at the MAC theatre in Birmingham.

Delegates and speakers travelled from all over the country to take part in the UK’s only annual dementia friendly communities conference. The focus was on Rights, Inclusion and Diversity: at the heart of the community highlights included presentations from people living with dementia and a lively discussion on the current and future role of making communities dementia friendly.

A big thank you to all speakers and delegates who made the conference a resounding success. Lastly a huge thank you to the MAC Birmingham for taking part in a pre-event audit and providing a superb example of what a dementia friendly venue and their staff should offer.
