Broseley Library aims to increase dementia awareness. A campaign to tackle the stigma and lack of understanding around dementia has got the support of the town council and its staff.

Heather Rodenhurst, a team librarian with Shropshire Libraries and a trained Dementia Friends Champion, is running a free ‘Dementia Friends’ Information Session on 16 September and is looking for local people to come along. 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, talks and acts about the condition.

Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends programme to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts. There are currently 850,000 people living with the condition in England.

The one-hour session will take place at Broseley Library at 2pm.
