Creating Dementia-Friendly Churches at the heart of Dementia-Friendly Communities

Many people in our community are living with dementia, and we believe that churches can be a great place of support.

Our team of Dementia-Friendly Church Enablers work across the Lichfield Diocese area:
• Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin: Sarah Thorpe -
• Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent: Mike Bridgewater -
• Black Country: Su Parker -

They work to create dementia-friendly churches at the heart of dementia friendly communities.

We are committed to support our churches:

  • As they embark on initial engagement as dementia-friendly churches;
  • As they continue to embed dementia-friendly church at the heart of their ministry;
  • As they extend their connections, working with local and national partners, accessing a wide range of resources.
