The Dementia Friendly Churches Initiative

The Dementia Friendly Churches Initiative offers a range of services / resources to support churches to become more accessible and inclusive for people with dementia and their carers.
 

How we can help your church

 

Dementia Friendly Churches Initiative offers a number of services:

  • 1. An audit to assess how dementia friendly your church currently is and develop an action plan.
  • 2. Mentoring – on-going mentoring and advice for your church or organisation.
  • 3. A one off ‘Dementia Friends’ training session for your church or organisation.
  • 4. A four part series of training/workshops for your church/ organisation.
  •  

To see how Dementia Friendly Churches works in practice, watch this video documenting our work with the Diocese of Lichfield. Livability, along with a number of other local organisations, delivered a series of workshops to over 25 churches in the diocese to support them to become more dementia friendly:
