Intercultural Support

This database contains information of potential interest to people with dementia and their supporters (e.g. family, friends and informal carers) from minority ethnic groups, as well as to professional carers, policy makers and all involved in designing, developing and providing intercultural care and support for people with dementia.

The identification and sharing of tried and tested initiatives and materials should hopefully provide ideas and a solid basis for the development or improvement of such services and support in Europe, adapting them where necessary, and at the same time help avoid the duplication of efforts. This database is an ongoing repository of information and we would be pleased to hear from you about other initiatives and relevant materials in Europe.
