Join Dementia Friends Champion Claire for a Dementia Friends session.
Dementia touches the lives of millions of people across the country. Dementia Friends was launched to tackle the stigma and lack of understanding that means many people with the condition experience loneliness and social exclusion.
The session is all about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From getting in touch with someone you know living with dementia to wearing your badge with pride, every action counts.
Tickets available from any Explore Library or call Dringhouses Library on (01904 552674) or email@example.com.

Local services labelled as “requires improvement”
The York Council will debate on Wednesday a report on the progress being made in addressing failings in NHS services in the City.
The report responds to a Care Quality Commission review last year in which 70% of the areas rated were judged to be ‘Good’, 25% as ‘Requires Improvement’ and 5% as ‘Inadequate’.
5 areas for immediate improvement were identified as;
- Safety and suitability of premises
- Systems for identifying, handling and responding to complaints
- Ensuring staff receive appropriate training, supervision and appraisals
- Ensuring there are enough suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff at all times to meet patients’ needs
- Eliminating mixed sex accommodation
A report to the Councils Health Scrutiny Committee, details the changes that the Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust was required to make and progress against targets.
The Trust claims to have achieved 96% of its improvement targets
NB. The same meeting will discuss a report on the direct payments made to individuals in York for care services. The Council has implemented a policy where those who opt for direct payments receive the payments to a personal account. There had been some concerns raised when payments had been made to third party organisations.
