Care Network is committed to building a dementia friendly community in Blackburn with Darwen. Our newly launched Directory of Services has been created for people living with dementia and their family and carers, so everyone can easily find out about activities, advice, guidance and services that are available to them. You can pick up a copy of the directory from Care Network Hub, or download here.

We are dementia friends

The whole staff team and our team of safe traders are all dementia friends, this means that we have all learnt a little bit about what it's like to live with dementia and the small ways we can help, from telling friends about Dementia Friends to visiting someone we know living with dementia and more.

Dementia Action Alliance

Care Network is a member of Blackburn with Darwen Dementia Action Alliance. We are a group of people who are working together to create a Dementia Friendly Community. We are focusing on what we can all do to improve inclusion and quality of life for people with dementia, including making daily living and activities easier and more accessible to people living with dementia. The initiative is in response to the Prime Minister's Challenge on Dementia 2020.
