The Race Equality Foundation’s programme supporting people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities affected by dementia under the Covid pandemic has come to an end and a newsletter summarising the programme is available here.
Race Equality Foundation were awarded a grant by the Department of Health and Social Care to lead a programme with Black South West Network, Caribbean African Health Network and Friends Families and Travellers, to work with 21 voluntary and community organisations to support black, Asian, and minority ethnic people living with dementia and their carers, in England during the coronavirus pandemic. The work was supported by Toby Williamson Consultancy, a member of the NDAA.
The Foundation also has a range of resources and information about Covid for people with dementia translated into ten community languages. This includes dementia leaflets about ways of coping with social restrictions for people with dementia and family carers, adapted from information developed by the IDEAL ‘living well with dementia’ research project at Exeter University, who’s advisory group Toby Williamson and Alzheimer’s Society sits on. You can find the translated resources here.
