Dementia Friendly

Hayling Island

Dementia Friendly Hayling Island is a group of volunteers working to make Hayling Island more supportive, understanding and inclusive for people living with dementia.

Everyone is invited to attend lively, informative and interactive sessions, telling them more about dementia, and inviting them to become Dementia Friends. Attendees are invited to think about actions they could take to make life better for people with dementia. Sessions are free and the next one will be held at Hayling Community Centre on Tuesday 23rd January at 7.00pm.

Local businesses, community groups and organisations of all sorts are also being offered free information sessions and invited to sign up to work towards making their business more dementia friendly, through simple changes.

We have so far, created more than 450 Dementia Friends and spoken to shops, pubs, clubs, community groups, church groups and caring organisations. We were at the Older Person’s Information Fair in October, where we spoke to many of you and held two well-attended Dementia Friends sessions. Please spread the word and encourage your friends to sign up too.

We need more volunteers to help with this exciting initiative, and we would like to invite more organisations on the island to get involved.

If you would like to hear more, attend a session or ask us to visit your business please contact Dementia Friendly Hayling Island on 07555606917 or email us at hello@dementiafriendlyhayling.org.uk
