Richmondshire District Council

Becoming dementia friendly

Dementia Friendly Richmondshire aims to help businesses to take the first steps in working towards becoming a dementia friendly business. 

The group brings individuals and organisations together to reduce the stigma and raise the understanding of dementia. This enables people living with dementia to continue doing the things they enjoy within their own community for longer.

The group can help your business by:

  • Providing you with communication tips which can be used when speaking to someone with dementia
  • Assisting you to create a dementia friendly physical space - small changes can make a big difference
  • Providing dementia awareness training to you and your staff
