Teignbridge CVS and 4 Dementia Carers have been delivering 'Apathy not Empathy' training across Devon to help community groups support members and volunteers who may be experiencing memory loss.
The three-hour session helps organisations to tackle the challenges of memory loss and dementia and offers practical steps to be more supportive to their members, service users, volunteers and staff who may be affected.
The sessions cover: Dementia Friends – developing awareness and understanding; Practical Steps – helping clubs/organisations to be more inclusive; Organisational Health Check – using policies and procedures to ensure equality, safety and continuity
The training is being offered free, thanks to support by Devon County Council, and all the events have been well attended.
