The help and support available to people in Wolverhampton living with dementia and their families will be showcased through a series of events during Dementia Action Week.

This year’s programme is the city’s biggest yet, with over 30 activities ranging from information and advice sessions to social events and memory cafes.

The highlight of the wide-ranging programme, organised by Wolverhampton Dementia Action Alliance and the City of Wolverhampton Council, is an information and advice event in the Mander Centre on Tuesday 21 May from 11am-2pm.
