About this event

Rural Wisdom Conversation Starter Series

Join Us! We invite you to a series of short events that aim to generate conversation around the issues that matter to older people in rural communities. Our webinars bring together a range of people to offer different perspectives on the challenges and solutions. We hope this inspires you to take the conversation back to your own community, along with contacts and ideas from the event.

What is the Dementia Friendly Communities session about?

Through our work in rural communities we know there are areas developing in ways that work well for people living with dementia. In doing so, they also create communities that work better for a wider range of people - of all ages.

Join us and our guest speakers to hear about what is working well, approaches such as the Kirriemuir Meeting Centre, and useful resources like the Dementia Friendly Communities Toolkit from Life Changes Trust.

Our guest speakers include Colm McBriarty - Dementia Programme, Life Changes Trust, and Graham Galloway - Chief Executive, Kirrie Connections.

Following presentations we will have a short time for a Q&A, if you have any specific questions that you would like to send in advance please contact kate@otbds.org.

We look forward to seeing you there!
