Join libraries this Dementia Action Week and make a difference to those affected by dementia by becoming a Dementia Friend.

During Dementia Action Week, Essex Libraries will be hosting a number of free Dementia Friends information sessions. These friendly and interactive sessions are designed to increase your understanding of dementia and to help you think about the small things you can do to make a difference in your community. You can book your place in advance or simply turn up on the day.

If you or someone you know is affected by dementia, you may find our Reading Well Books on Prescription for Dementia useful. In addition anyone affected by memory loss can continue to enjoy using the library, stress-free, with the Memory Support Card. Ask staff for more information next time you visit your local library.
