Dementia Hub Focus Group - currently on-hold
This group is for clients who are in the early stages of dementia. It provides a chance to get together and become involved in projects and campaigns that improve the lives of people with dementia living in the borough of Lewisham.
The group has been involved in a number of initiatives, including contributing to dementia research and consultations. It also plays a key role in making Lewisham a more dementia-friendly borough, advising local businesses and services on the challenges people with dementia face with access or signage, and how they can be more dementia aware.
