Special initiative: Dementia Friendly

Whitehead Monckton has been awarded ‘Working To Become Dementia Friendly’ recognition from the Kent County Council Dementia Friendly Communities team. We have been able to apply for this as we have a high percentage of Dementia Friends across our offices. These percentages are steadily increasing across all of our offices.

Bekka Fuszard has taken on the role as the firm’s dedicated ‘dementia lead’. To earn the recognition, Bekka has committed to several pledges such as attending local Dementia Friendly Community meetings (regularly attended by local care providers and medical professionals) and holding Dementia Friends Information Sessions at local schools and care homes.
