Growing the Dementia Adventure movement through social licensing.
People living with dementia, their family carers and the staff and friends who support them consistently tell us that:
They need a Dementia Adventure in their area
There are not enough choices and outdoor activities on offer locally
They would like to do more with the right support
They wish we had known about us three years ago
There are too many people who are ‘risk averse’ and need training and support to embrace the benefits of outdoor activity for people with dementia
Dementia Adventure wants to expand the benefits of our nature based positive risk taking approach with key local and national partners, sharing and building on our successful experience of providing adventures for people living with dementia across the UK and the spectrum of Dementia.
Our objective is to build long-term partnerships which increase the choices on offer for people living with dementia – specifically connecting them to outdoor nature based adventures through the support of confident, trained Dementia Adventure leaders.
The legacy of this work will be a growing network of dedicated, experienced and knowledgeable adventure leaders who will receive in-depth support from head office.
Dementia Adventure (the licensor) is looking for organisations (licensees) with shared values who want work with us to grow the opportunities for outdoor activities for people with dementia. We will then identify and select a group of individuals in that organisation with whom we will work over the year through one of our social licence packages.
