Over the last few weeks, we have been lucky enough to have welcomed the charity programme Dementia Friends (run by the Alzheimers Society) to SIAL. Over the course of three days, we had two separate workshops for the children and the teachers and parents alike, finishing the events with a fundraising cake sale.
Dementia is quickly becoming more and more common in the UK. Therefore the work Alzheimer’s Society’s ‘Dementia Friends’ programme is doing is so very important. The programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. The aim is to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and speaks of the condition.
