Dementia Friends Campaign Launched

Public Health England and the Alzheimer's Society have launched a campaign to encourage people to sign up as Dementia Friends.

The campaign aims to recruit one million friends by 2015 through raising awareness of dementia and the things that can make a difference to someone with the condition.

You can become a dementia friend for free by either watching a short on-line video or attending a 45 minute face-to-face briefing.
