At the end of 2021 we received some funding from the Life Changes Trust to help make Dollar dementia-friendly. We will be working with people with dementia and their carers, other charities, the Dollar Health Centre, social care organisations and businesses to make improvements to our town.

We have employed Morven Cadell as our project officer to take this work forward.

The main activities for the project will be:

  • Making the Hive dementia friendly
  • Providing awareness raising and training to the local community, businesses, organisations and our own volunteers to help develop a better understanding of the condition and reduce the stigma often attached to it
  • Environmental Audits of Dollar to help improve our built environment and streetscapes
  • Providing sessions in the Hive for people living with dementia and their carers

We would love to hear from you if you would like to be involved in the project or have ideas. Please contact Morven on morven@dollarcdt.com.

Help us shape the project – Drop in sessions in March and April

This work is possible due to funding from the Life Changes Trust.  The Life Changes Trust is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
