Am I eligible?

Anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend - we want school children and young people to be involved, as well as older people.

You don't need any previous experience or knowledge of dementia to be a Dementia Friend. You do need to want to know a little bit more about what it's like to live with dementia and then turn that understanding into something that could make a difference to people with dementia living in your community.

Please join us. Because, together, we can create more dementia friendly communities.

Search for your nearest Dementia Friends Information Session using the box on the right.
Please note  - Friends Information Sessions promoted on this website are only suitable for people aged under 18 if they are accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over. If you work with children and young people and would like them to become Dementia Friends, please get involved by volunteering as a Dementia Friends Champion.

If you have already attended an Information Session please login and tell us about your action. 

If you want to know about other ways that you can help, please read on.
