A Dementia Friendly Hawkesbury

Council is currently embarking on consultations with the community to develop a plan for a more Dementia friendly, accessible and safe Hawkesbury.

Council will host two face to face community sessions with community members on Friday, 19 July 2019 at Hawkesbury Leisure and Learning Centre, 114 March Street, Richmond.

The consultations will be of interest to anyone living with dementia, family and friends of people living with dementia, people concerned with memory loss and service providers. The aim is to increase the awareness of dementia and discuss ways to improve access to support, as well as better access to information and services in the Hawkesbury. This is an initiative of Council’s Dementia Friendly Hawkesbury Working Group.

Community sessions

Morning session: 10am to midday – consultation with people living with dementia and their carers

Afternoon session: 2pm to 4pm – consultation with businesses, organisations and services
