Shopper-Aide Ltd has recently been awarded funding to begin developing Dementia Friendly Communities in Kintyre.
Sarah McFadzean, will be organising some information events to let people know what she is planning in their area and to gather the thoughts of the local communities on how they can be a Dementia Friendly Community.
