Wolverhampton collected a Judges Special Mention award at the 2014 LGiU and CCLA C’llr Achievement Awards for the work taking place to create a city where people living with dementia are better understood and offered the help and support they need.
Wolverhampton City Council took up the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia, calling for the development of a number of Dementia Friendly Communities around the country, in 2012. Since then, health and social care providers, local businesses, religious groups and other organisations have worked tirelessly to improve services for people living with dementia.
The work has been spearheaded by Councillor Steve Evans, Wolverhampton City Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Services, who was nominated in the Age UK category at the ceremony held in London on 25 February, 2014. Read more here.
