The report “Mapping dementia-friendly communities across Europe” was commissioned by the European Foundations’ Initiative on Dementia (EFID) and carried out by the Mental Health Foundation (a UK non-governmental organisation) in 2014 and 2015. The research originated from a shared interest of the foundations engaged in EFID in conducting an analysis of concepts and practices of what is commonly referred to as ‘dementia-friendly communities’ (DFCs) and similar initiatives across Europe. The aim of the report is to provide practical information, guidance and examples to support good practice around sustainable, inclusive and supportive environments for people living with dementia and their carers.
