The Health Innovation Network – the Academic Health Science Network for South London - has launched a resource pack to promote and encourage more support opportunities for people with dementia.

Bringing together examples of good practice and evidence-based guidance, the pack aims to help groups and organisations better support people with dementia.

The resource pack introduces the concept of a ‘Peer Support System’ that recognises the value of social opportunities for people with dementia to meet others in the community, whether they are informal or structured opportunities, dementia specific or available to everyone to enjoy.
