Dementia Friend PicJoin Dementia Friends Champion Claire for a Dementia Friends session.

Dementia touches the lives of millions of people across the country. Dementia Friends was launched to tackle the stigma and lack of understanding that means many people with the condition experience loneliness and social exclusion.

The session is all about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From getting in touch with someone you know living with dementia to wearing your badge with pride, every action counts.

Tickets available from any Explore Library or call Dringhouses Library on (01904 552674) or dringhouses@exploreyork.org.uk.
