FGR Community staff have recently been attending Dementia Awareness Training sessions to support them in being more inclusive in their outreach.

They're highly recommending to you these sessions:

The NHS are offering online information sessions as a way of connecting with others who care for someone with dementia in a safe and relaxed environment.
