Dementia Friendly Communities Workshop


Warwickshire County Council, through Public Health, is offering free dementia awareness training for frontline workers. This supports the aims of Warwickshire’s Living Well with Dementia Strategy, which include creating a more Dementia Friendly Warwickshire.

This free three-hour session will help to raise awareness about dementia generally and how best to support and communicate with people with dementia. It will also provide information about Dementia Friendly Communities, and dementia services and support available locally.

The workshop is delivered by training consultant Hazel Ratcliffe, who has worked in Social & Health care for over thirty years. As a Qualified Nurse, Psychotherapist and Social Worker, Hazel has been worked with a wide range of client groups, but more intensively with people with Learning Disabilities, Mental health issues & Dementia.
