Dementia Friendly Communities

Providing an online hub for education and support for those living with dementia

While redeveloping Dementia Australia‚Äôs main website, we also rebuilt their community-focused member portal for their Dementia Friendly Communities initiative, with new designs and an upgrade from Drupal 7 to 8.

The DFC site is an online portal for their initiative to address the stigma, isolation and discrimination experienced by many people living with dementia. 

The new site allows users to register and complete courses about dementia, and post events in their communities aimed at promoting dementia awareness, as well as providing tools for individuals to create local groups and alliances, and for organisations to become dementia-friendly spaces.

The initial launch represents phase one of the project, with the next phase to come soon to further extend the course offering and interactive features.
