KEY ACHIEVEMENTS NUMBER 18: GOSPORT'S 'DEMENTIA FRIENDS' INITIATIVE

Earlier on this year, I hosted a 'Dementia Friends' training session for my local team during which a representative from the Alzheimer's Society explained what we can do to ensure that people living with dementia are not isolated from our community. Following on from this successful session, I held an event in Gosport Discovery Centre to kick start the expansion of the 'Dementia Friends' initiative in Gosport and lots of local people dropped in to put forward their suggestions about how we can make our area 'Dementia Friendly'. This is something that I would like to drive forward if I am re-elected on May 7th.
