Dementia Friendly Communities is a programme by Alzheimer’s Society which facilitates the creation of dementia-friendly communities across the UK.

Marlow Bridge Rotary Club is looking to see how we can work towards a Dementia Friendly Marlow.  Overall this is a very big project and we need to recruit stakeholders and volunteers to help us.

THE AIMS WILL DEVELOP OVER TIME AROUND:

  • Bringing the Marlow community together to make a difference to those living with dementia
  • Engaging in awareness raising activities and education in Marlow
  • Encouraging Marlow based organisations and businesses to see the importance of dementia awareness and empower them to take action
  • Ensuring we have a strong voice for Marlow people living with dementia, as well as their carers and loved ones

To move this initial stage forward, Marlow Bridge Rotary Club is holding a launch event in Marlow on  9th October 2018 to present more on what being Dementia Friendly means, give an update on our progress so far and ask for feedback and support going forward.  We hope this inaugural event will lead into a larger event in early 2019 where we can bring in other stakeholders from the wider audience such as charities, business and the community to move the overall project on further.

We are looking for support for this project, this can be as little or as much as you are able to kindly provide. 

We are delighted to have the backing of our MP!
