As part of Wincanton’s Dementia Friendly Community work, a free event is being organised on Tuesday 28th June from 1:00pm at the Wincanton Memorial Hall. We have Ian Sherriff coming to talk about helping to make communities dementia-friendly across the country, enabling people who live with the condition to feel understood, valued and able to contribute to their community.

Ian Sherriff has a wide range of roles but one of those is as Dementia Adviser to No 10 Downing Street. Here’s his bio -

Ian will talk for about an hour, followed by a Q&A session and then people are welcome to stay for an Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Friends awareness session which lasts around 50 minutes. This is for anyone who would like to understand what it’s like to live with dementia.

There will be a wide range of information tables with different organisations supporting people with dementia across the area. Refreshments provided too and all this is FREE!

In order to book a place or find out more, please call 07504 054 866 or email .
