Dementia Friends is a social action movement that aims to improve society’s understanding of dementia through just five key messages. There are thousands of Dementia Friends Champions – we’re very pleased to announce that our Community Volunteer CoordinatorMarina Murphy, is now one of them.

As a Dementia Friends Champion, Marina will spread these messages to friends, family, and members of our community through Information Sessions which are filled with activities and discussions. She’ll give you everything you need – just bring your enthusiasm!

FoSJP is also part of a Shirley Dementia Friendly Community, so Marina becoming a Champion will help us to spread the word. So please look out for Information Sessions or contact Marina on or leave a message on 023 8077 9763.
