Dementia Friends Champions: Ask your DFO

Ask your RSOEach month, one of our DFOs (Dementia Friends Officers) answer your Dementia Friends Champions questions. Becky Haines, DFO for the Midlands, answers this month’s question:

Question: I’ve seen some Dementia Friends have received a “Little Book of Friendship” in the post. Should I be giving these to new Dementia Friends in my information sessions?

Becky’s Answer: Thank you for your question. The Little Book of Friendship is only sent out to those who become Dementia Friends through the online route (by watching the video on our website). The book includes some extra information that you cover in the face to face information sessions, but which is not included in the video. So don’t worry you haven’t missed anything and the Dementia Friends will get all of the information they need from your sessions. Thanks for being a Champion and making a difference.

Got a question you need answering? Get in contact with your DFO.
