Year 12 students become Dementia Friends

Last week, thirty three students studying Health and Social Care in Year 12  33 Yr 12 signed up to become a Dementia Friends. Doing so meant pledging to take one small action to spread awareness of Dementia.  

 Some of the things they pledged to do were 

  • Getting in touch and staying in touch with someone I know living with dementia
  • Volunteering for an organisation that helps people with dementia
  • Campaigning for change, e.g. by signing up to Alzheimer’s Society’s campaigns to improve the lives of people with dementia
  • Wearing my badge and telling 5 friends about the Dementia Friends initiative
  • Carrying out a personal action eg Be more patient when out in my community

The Year 12 students took part in a workshop with a Dementia friends champion and received a badge to identify themselves as Dementia friends to spread awareness among students and staff at Bordesley Green Girls' School and Sixth Form.
