One of our new projects this Autumn is working on becoming much more Dementia Friendly within our community. We are working closely with our local Dementia friendly champions and community workers along with Sheffield Dementia Action Alliance.

We already signpost through our website and Facebook pages to any dementia friendly groups… click here to see our events calendar, for dementia friendly events which are currently running via zoom. If you know of any others which members of our Parish would benefit from please email: emmamainwaring@ecclesfield-pc.gov.uk.

We will also be posting weekly activity packs for those with Dementia, which can be printed at home. Please click here for this week’s pack.

Here at the Parish council we are hoping to become more dementia friendly and in turn help our whole Parish to become more so. We will be initially making changes from the Parish Council, including making our literature as dementia friendly where possible. We are in the process of issuing our first newsletter and over the first few issues we will be making this as dementia friendly as possible. Meaning lots of boxed text and pictures.

If you would like any further information, or advice on how to become more dementia friendly please contact emmaminwaring@ecclesfield-pc.gov.uk
