Our Connected Neighbourhoods is an ongoing community outreach project, which started in September 2017, in the Stirling area funded by the Life Changes Trust and based at the University of Stirling.
We are focused on creating dementia inclusive communities by identifying the strengths of neighbourhoods and connecting these together for greater capacity and sustainability. Through research and community engagement, we have developed and tested a toolkit to support neighbourhoods along their journey to becoming dementia-inclusive. OCN is built around core themes; these are a starting point to develop more inclusive communities, led by people living with dementia and their unpaid carers, using an exciting range of community conversation and design tools.
