Bristol-based charity BRACE and the Bristol Dementia Action Alliance are running a free workshop to advise businesses on how to become dementia friendly
An estimated 22 million people in the UK have a family member or friend who has dementia. A YouGov poll found that 49 per cent of the public say they are more likely to support a company if they are aware it supports people living with dementia.
Two thirds of people with dementia live in the community and they, their families and their carers are either your existing or potential customers. Undertaking small actions to support people with dementia would help your organisation to comply with the Equality Act 2010, which recognises dementia as a disability.
Businesses are an essential part of our communities and through small and inexpensive changes you can make a big difference to your staff and customers alike. It’s good for business and it’s the right thing to do.
BRACE and the Bristol Dementia Action Alliance are inviting you or a colleague to a short workshop which could help put you at the vanguard of dementia friendly businesses in Bristol.
It is their aim to help make Bristol business the most dementia friendly city in the UK.
