Dementia Friendly East Lothian (DFEL)
Dementia Friendly East Lothian was awarded funding of £15,000, to run from August 2015 to December 2016.
Having dementia doesn’t take away the right to be an active citizen with rights and choices. Nor does it mean the end of dreams, aspirations and hopes for the future and it’s about all ages, not just older people.
This funding was awarded to further develop work that was already taking place to make East Lothian dementia friendly, based on a community development model with the aim of building capacity and sustainability for the longer term.
