In 2017 Dementia Adventure were awarded funding from the National Lottery to equip four national organisations with the skills and confidence they need to make activities accessible and enjoyable for people living with dementia. The 3 year project was set up to challenge the stereotypes of what people living with dementia can do and create opportunities that enable them to get outdoors, to reduce feelings of isolation and improve their overall welfare.
Now entering its final year, the project has proved to be a wonderful success. Dementia Adventure have trained over 50 employees and volunteers from the four organisations. The training has led to more than 500 dementia inclusive activities being delivered at Care Farms, conservation locations, community projects and in care homes, all enabling people to engage with nature. Locations from Inverness to Cornwall, Yorkshire to Suffolk and Sussex to Milton Keynes have been involved.
