We are adapting the Time to Shine Friendly Communities project to the current extraordinary circumstances. We want to support our communities to become and to remain age and dementia friendly as we go through the coronavirus crisis. We are helping to keep older people connected, share good practice, work in partnership and provide a platform for older people’s voices on Covid-19.
