Life Changes Trust - Dementia Friendly Communities Development Funding
Dementia Friendly Communities aims to improve quality of life and well-being of people whose lives are affected by dementia – both people with dementia and unpaid carers.
This round of funding is an open call for one year of development funding. Through this funding, the Trust is looking to support those who are at the very earliest stages of starting a community that is Dementia Friendly. They are looking to fund both geographical Dementia Friendly communities and communities of interest, large and small.
For geographical communities, they are looking for community-led, grassroots initiatives that have included people living with dementia and unpaid carers in the planning (not just as a member on a steering group).
For communities of interest, they are looking for projects that act as exemplars for others and which will also integrate with the wider community.
