This report describes the views of people affected by dementia and their carers. It explores the barriers that people face in their community, how they would like to be engaged with their local
area and the support they need to do so. It also includes details of a number of projects that
are already making a difference for people with dementia.

The report sets out a definition of a definition of a dementia-friendly community and pinpoints 10 areas to concentrate on for communities working to become dementia friendly.
