WEGs took part in a dementia friends session as part of the Baiter Sehat project with One Voice Blackburn. The girls found the session to be extremely informative and insightful.

Dementia Friends is a programme to raise awareness of the condition. Dementia Friends pledge to spread their knowledge of dementia throughout their communities.

One of the WEGS said, “I learnt that dementia isn’t just about memory loss. As a society we can have a more positive attitude towards dementia.”
Another WEGS member, 14, said, “I now know dementia affects everybody differently. You don’t have to be old to have dementia.”

The WEGS visited Singleton Maize Maze in Blackpool. The girls had a thoroughly enjoyable time. They were challenged to find hidden codes. This unique experience allowed the girls to build on communication and problem solving skills and was a great bonding exercise.
