Making Portsmouth a Dementia Friendly City

The Remind Dementia Service is working to make Portsmouth a Dementia Friendly City. By engaging with local businesses and community services, we will help people have a better understanding of how they can support people with dementia and their carers:

  • We are providing free Dementia Friends training sessions to local businesses and services. This will help to create more awareness of the needs of people with dementia and how to make shop environments more welcoming.
  • We are inviting other organisations to join a Dementia Action Alliance which will work to attain Dementia Friendly status for Portsmouth.

If you would like to find out more about Dementia Friendly sessions for your organisation, or would like to join the Dementia Action Alliance*, please contact us on:

*A local dementia action alliance is a network of organisations, businesses and community members who want to improve the lives of local people affected by dementia through action.
