Our programme of free online Dementia Skills Sessions are designed for the family and friends of people living with dementia, as well staff and volunteers who support people with dementia as part of their work.
The sessions connect you with experienced dementia trainers and dementia supporters to learn how to think differently about dementia, while receiving practical guidance to empower you in your role.
The programme covers a range of subjects to help people at home, in the workplace, in care homes, and people providing outdoor or nature-based activities or wanting their organisation to be more inclusive.
The starting point for the Dementia Skills Session programme is the key building block – Thinking Differently About Dementia. It is essential that you complete this module before any of the others, as it provides you with foundational knowledge you need to get the most out of further training.
If you are a volunteer or staff member, these sessions may inspire you to consider further training to upskill others across your organisation or project, create more inclusive and accessible services or set up a nature-based programme for people living with dementia. We can provide you with tailored training and support for your organisation and team.
All of our Dementia Skills Sessions are free, made possible through donations, including the player’s of the People’s Postcode Lottery. If you would like to make a donation to enable us to support more people with dementia at this critical time please click here .

“The session was well prepared, visually engaging and easy to understand. Debbie and Kath have strong facilitation skills and invited participants to get involved where possible. Carers attending the session were listened to and given positive affirming feedback about their support to the people living with dementia they support.”
“Your explanations were wonderfully clear and helpful, particularly for a practitioner such as myself needing to refresh my knowledge. Your webinar was perfect for me and will be perfect for my clients and their loved ones”.
