Prepare for Dementia Action Week: Free toolkit for organising your event

One of the resources offered through the toolkit

Dementia Action Week will be held from Monday 19 September to Sunday 25 September.

A free events toolkit to enable community groups, workplaces and individuals to show their support for people living with dementia is now available.  

‘A little support makes a big difference’. 

Theme of this year’s Dementia Action Week

To help people and groups provide this support and make a difference in the lives of people living with dementia in their community, Dementia Australia has produced an easy-to-download events and activities toolkit.

Dementia Australia CEO Maree McCabe AM says the toolkit is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to support people living with dementia in their community.  

“We know discrimination has a significant impact on people living with dementia, their families and carers, and a little support from the community and healthcare professionals can make a big difference,” Ms McCabe said.  

“We are encouraging communities to download the toolkit and come together to learn more about how they can support people living with dementia. Whether in a workplace, at a bowls or footy club, or just with friends and family, we want everyone to get together to learn more about dementia and how a little support can make a big difference.” 

Events can be hosted in-person or online using the toolkit resources depending on the COVID-19 guidelines in place.
