Become a Dementia Friend in Tamworth this Week

Dementia FriendsDo you live in or near Tamworth and would like to learn more about living with dementia and become a dementia friend?

Community Together CIC will be hosting a free dementia friends information session on Thursday 25th August 2016, 6.30pm until 7.30pm at their centre in Tamworth Castle Grounds, Tamworth, B79 7ND.

This session will be the latest one hosted by Community Together CIC.  Their aim is to deliver informative sessions over the next 12 months hopefully recruiting 100 dementia friends in the Tamworth area.

Community Together is supporting the work of Tamworth Borough Council to work towards making Tamworth a Dementia Friendly town.  Part of Community Together CIC’s commitment to being a Dementia Champion Organisation is hosting the information sessions and helping spread awareness in the community.

Lee Bates, Project Coordinator said, “More and More people are living with dementia and so it’s important as a community to have awareness and support people living with dementia.  We recently completed a Dementia Friendly Champion Training course through the Alzheimer’s Society, and we are committed to supporting working towards Tamworth’s dementia friendly status.”

If you would like to attend the session and become a Dementia Friend or would like more information about the session please contact Lee Bates on 01827 59646 or email ctcicinfo@gmail.com.
