An Announcement about Our Royal Patronage

RAF Museum London is accredited a Dementia Friendly Venue

Published on: 8 July 2022

The RAF Museum London is proud to announce that we are now an officially accredited Dementia Friendly Venue!

In 2021 the Mayor of London in partnership with Alzheimer’s Society, launched the World’s first Dementia Friendly Venues Charter for cultural public venues with a bid to focus on five key areas – Knowledge; Inclusivity; Accessibility; Communication and Sustainability.

In order to get the accreditation, we identified those areas of the framework that we wanted to work on and one of those was to have as many staff and volunteers as possible become Dementia Friends, so we delivered several Dementia Friends Information Sessions. We also added further information to our website so that people living with dementia could feel confident in planning a visit to the Museum.

Members of our London team with our certificate of accreditation from the London Mayors Office
Toni Donston (Access and Learning Officer) and Rhiannon Watkinson (Community Engagement Manager) at RAF Museum London: “We’re really excited about becoming accredited, but this isn’t the end of the story. We’re continuing to assess and change how we work in order to make us even more dementia friendly.”
