This project will develop Dementia Friendly Communities across Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole, increasing public awareness of dementia and assisting people with dementia to remain independent and to have choice and control over their lives. 

The emphasis will be on making best use of the facilities and organisations which already exist in communities. Additionally, links will be formed with local health and social care services.
