About this cause
We are also part of an “Alliance” of similar groups throughout the UK, working towards enabling their communities to become more Dementia aware. We operate on the generosity of sponsors, donations and goodwill! Our Mission Statement: We aim to enable Bristol to become a “Dementia Aware Community” We believe that people with Dementia have the right to a good quality of life and to remain independent in their local community. We believe that people with Dementia have the right to live well, engage in and contribute to their local communities as long as they wish to do so. We will address negative attitudes and raise awareness and understanding of Dementia.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Our project relies upon the local community, groups and volunteers working and having fun together. We will create events that support the community and help set-up new memory cafes. We will offer support to people with Dementia and their carers (offering respite and connection). Our events and awareness sessions will encourage people to work together throughout all the communities of Bristol.
