The objective of Dementia Friends is to create dementia friendly communities together by improving the understanding of dementia for one million people and inspiring them to act.

Schools and youth groups are invited to play an important role in this initiative and become Dementia Friends. By increasing understanding of dementia for children and young people as Dementia Friends, we can create a dementia friendly generation.
