The University of Northampton are hosting a Dementia Friendly Organisations Award for the first time in 2018. The award is open to organisations of any size (including local branches of national/international businesses and public and third sector organisations) across the county.
In order to apply, we are asking organisations to share with us an idea for how they might improve the way(s) they work with people with dementia and their carers. The organisation with the best idea (as voted for by a panel of judges) will receive the prize of a fully-funded intern (for 10 weeks) to put their idea into practice. Winning the award is not dependent on previous or ongoing initiatives (although we recognise that proposals may include extending existing activity), but on the potential difference that the proposed ideas can make to people with dementia and their carers.
Further information about the award is available through the brochure below. Any questions can be directed to
