Links

Here are some links that we have found during the course of the project – some of them are from groups and organisations that we have visited, worked and collaborated with, others might be useful to people living with dementia in the community and those in their circle of care. It’s also interesting to look a little more in depth at the work of artists, musicians and groups which have supported the project and their communities.
