We are encouraging people to join the Dementia Friends initiative and learn more about dementia and the small ways you can help – from telling friends about dementia friends to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts.
Shops, businesses, health and transport services can also make small changes to their layout and décor to welcome people with dementia.
