Guidance for communities to become dementia friendly

New guidance has been issued for communities to achieve Dementia Friendly Community status. It sets out a framework communities can work to in order to achieve a kite-mark recognising their dementia-friendly status.

Produced by BSI, the UK's National Standards Body, in conjunction with Alzheimer's Society and the Department of Health, the guidance directs users on how to get started and provides additional resources so local communities can continue to become dementia-friendly. Communities who meet criteria are given a symbol which they can give to organisations and businesses who have stated what actions they have taken towards becoming dementia-friendly.
