A Dementia Friendly Council
Newport Town Council is a member of Newport Dementia Action Alliance, Shropshire, and is committed to help people affected by dementia in our community.
Making our town a more dementia-friendly community is clearly the right thing to do for all our local families affected by dementia. Being a DAA member will help to keep us focused on our actions and these will be informed by families affected by dementia, by others in our community, and by our ongoing discussions at the Dementia-Friendly Newport Group.
A bit more time
People with dementia can find everyday things more difficult, being a little more patient can go a long way towards making these situations easier.
The Guildhall is often a point of contact for local residents, and staff have become Dementia Friends to provide support to individuals and their friends and family in order to enable them to access Town Council Services more easily.
