Dementia Friends

We now have just over 500 members of staff and volunteers, from across the museum, who are Dementia Friends. Look out for our staff wearing their knitted or crocheted versions of the ‘forget me not’ badges.

We are committed to helping make our museum and our community more Dementia Friendly. We are members of the Durham Dementia Action Alliance and we are collaborating with local businesses, organisations and residents to work towards creating a Dementia Friendly Community in Stanley.
