The Housing LIN was commissioned by The Guinness Partnership to undertake an independent evaluation of the progress made in becoming a more dementia-friendly organisation.

Guinness implemented a two year project in 2015 to take forward developments, initially in two pilot areas of Havant and Manchester, with a view to rolling out successful approaches more broadly.

Jeremy Porteus, Managing Director of the Housing LIN said:

"This report highlights that The Guinness Partnership recognises the scale of the dementia awareness challenge.

"Guinness has not just invested in the physical buildings, but in training and research - meaning that it can tailor its services.

"And because staff awareness is so much higher, dementia-friendly thinking is part of Guinness's day-to-day approach."
