Memory-Friendly Neighbourhoods

The Memory-Friendly Neighbourhoods (MFN) programme ran in two phases between 2014 and 2017.

They focused first, on what makes a good, lifelong, inclusive neighbourhood for a person whose life is affected by dementia. Then they turned to the idea of creating a ‘virtual neighbourhood’, looking at how people living with dementia use and navigate online environments.

Funded by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute (SUII), MFN was a collaboration between research centres at the Universities of Stirling and Edinburgh – led by Dr Richard Ward (Stirling) and Máire Cox (Edinburgh). The Memory-Friendly online platform is a product of the original project and takes forward its core aim of helping to make the Scottish National Dementia Strategy a liveable reality.
