Walking Audit Workshop at the Falkirk Wheel this Friday

Join us for an experiential dementia-friendly audit session, organised in collaboration with Architecture Fringe and Scottish Canals.

Our Connected Neighbourhoods has worked with people living with dementia and their unpaid carers to develop and design a range of tools for neighbourhoods to become more dementia friendly, creating a whole neighbourhood approach. A key part of the project was developing a walking audit toolkit that would look at the built environment and the spaces between places that are important in our communities and identify ways they could be made more inclusive and accessible for all, but particularly through the lens of dementia friendly access. The audit process is an engaging and meaningful activity for people to take part in and is also creative and flexible.

We will be leading an experiential walk where you can get a feel for the tools and try them out whilst hearing from the team about the successful outcomes of doing this in Stirling City and the aspirations for using this in Camelon and Tamfourhill communities and along the canal in particular.

We hope you can join us at the Falkirk Wheel, in the Cafe for a refreshment and then a short walk either as far as Lock 16 or, time and access need dependent, as far as Rosebank and returning to the Wheel for 5pm. We have had an invitation to stay on and participate in some min-golf and have something to eat afterwards if you would like at the Wheel.
