A Dementia Friend is someone who learns a little bit more about what it's like to live with dementia and then turns that understanding into action - anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend.

Dementia Friends Ambassadors are volunteers who talk to people about being a Dementia Friend in their community. It is easy to get involved. Dementia Friends Ambassadors attend a training session, receive support as and when they need it and are part of a growing network of people creating dementia friendly communities together.
