A charity leading a bid to make Norwich a dementia-friendly city is asking the public to come forward with their experiences.

Age UK Norwich are asking anyone living with dementia, their carers or family who live in Norwich, its suburbs or who regularly visit to take part in a survey.

Dan Skipper, chief operating officer, said: 'We want to understand what people living with dementia experience on a day-to-day basis, to learn about the positive things that support them in their local area, or highlight any challenges they face, which maybe impacting what they want to do. These results will help shape our plans as an alliance and what we focus on in 2018 and beyond.'

More than 50 organisations now make up the Dementia Friendly Norwich Alliance, and 1,105 people have been trained as dementia friends through the scheme. To take the survey, visit www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/norwichcitydementiasurvey/
