About Dementia Friendly Swansea

Welcome to Dementia Friendly Swansea, formerly Dementia Supportive Community Swansea. We aim to improve the quality of life for people living with dementia. Find out more about us, how we can help you and how you can get involved.

Facebook Group

Due to Covid Dementia Friendly Swansea meetings had to go on the back burner. However we are now active again via Zoom meetings and a new private group on Facebook. This group aims to keep the good work of Dementia Friendly Swansea moving forward and you’re welcome to join.

Become A Dementia Friend

Anybody can become a Dementia Friend. It’s just about understanding a bit more about dementia and the small things you can do to help people with the condition.

Clubs & Events

There are numerous events throughout the month to assist carers and loved ones with dementia.
