Dementia-friendly Guide for village halls launched


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has made available a guide for councils and communities on how to make your village hall dementia-friendly.

Following work to combat isolation for older people, Worcester Community Foundation, with funding from the Glencora Fund, and support from Community First in Herefordshire and Worcestershire, Malvern Dementia Action Alliance and the University of Worcester have developed this Guide and Checklist for Village Halls. 

Local village halls have kindly participated in this pilot project to develop and test the Guide and Checklist in practice. It does not supersede building, health and safety and any other relevant legislation or guidance. 

The link below is to the relevant webpage on the NALC website from where the guide can be downloaded.
