Dementia Friendly East Belfast

Posted on: May 17th, 2017

The Dementia Friendly East Belfast campaign was formally launched at the start of May 2017. The campaign is a collaboration between leading agencies and organisations that seek to support people affected by Dementia.

Dementia Friendly East Belfast aims to make East Belfast a friendlier place for people living with dementia, their family friends and carers, and for older people.

Organisations involved include Dementia NI, Alzheimer’s Society, East Belfast Community Development Agency, Linking Generations, the Belfast Health Trust, Public Health Agency, and many more. Engage with Age co-chairs the campaign along with East Belfast Community Development Agency.
