Dementia Friendly Communities (Scottish Highlands)

Dementia Friendly Communities is a social enterprise based in Sutherland in the Scottish Highlands. They work towards a vision for communities in the Highlands to recognise and embrace the challenges a life with dementia presents to the families affected, enabling them to live life to its full potential. 

It has been doing hugely effective work to realise this vision through a model which ensures that people with dementia and their families are included in their community, and that local activities exist so that they can continue to enjoy things that are meaningful to them, for as long as they wish to. It also provides a range of innovative services which provide support for carers.
