Lewes Chamber of Commerce actively supports LDDAA. If you would like to like to, like us, help them achieve their vision please visit their facebook page for more information.
Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.
