Making Colchester Dementia Friendly

Colchester Dementia Friendly Community is a collaborative initiative on behalf of the ONE Colchester strategic partnership, and initially implemented by Colchester City Council and Community360, to make the Borough a more dementia aware community.

Colchester Dementia Friendly Community brings together people living with dementia, their carers, and assets within the local area with organisations to enable people to live well with dementia.

Our aim is to make Colchester a ‘Dementia Friendly’ town and District where people living with dementia and their carers feel confident knowing they can live their lives with access to the services and support they need to fully participate in community life.
