Hampshire County Council want to develop "Dementia Friendly Community" in Hampshire. A dementia friendly community is one in which it is possible for the greatest number of people to live a good life with dementia: where people with dementia are enabled to live as independently as possible and to continue to be part of their community, but at the same time are met with understanding and given support where necessary. Hampshire County Council is inviting expressions of interest from organisations that are able to undertake a project to bring about change to support people with dementia and their carers, to continue to live as "normal" a life as possible, and to stay connected to their communities for as long as they would like to. The project should deliver:
- Groups of empowered people with dementia and their carers who will have a voice and role developing services and support that enable them to "live well" with dementia,
- An engaged community enthusiastic about and supportive of people with dementia that promotes inclusivity in its universal services e.g. leisure centres, opticians, shops, restaurants, hairdressers.
