Dementia friendly venues

Continuing my mini-series on the ageing population, I found this new initiative by the mayor of London: the world’s first Dementia Friendly Venues Charter.

As London’s creative arts scene re-opens with the lifting of Covid restrictions, the mayor in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society launched an initiative so that those living with dementia can make the most of the city’s cultural venues.

The charter aims to make cultural venues more welcoming and accessible for visitors with dementia through a range of dementia-friendly resources including sensory tours, inclusive performances, dedicated relaxed sessions, clear signage, designated chill out zones and staff training.
