I have just completed a Dementia Champions session which equips me to give an information session on dementia to interested people. I would be happy to deliver these one hour sessions to members of BHBPA and their staff as part of the Councils efforts to make Burgess Hill a Dementia Friendly town. The Help Point is a Dementia Haven where people who find themselves lost or confused can come or be directed to for assistance. Could you please put something like the following out in your newsletter?
The Town Council is keen to make Burgess Hill a Dementia Friendly town and is offering free Dementia Friends information sessions to businesses in the town. One in fourteen people over sixty has dementia though it does not only affect older people. Dementia Friends is a social action movement which aims to increase understanding of dementia and inspire people to take action to support people affected by dementia in their community. Sessions last 1 hour and can be given to up to 10 people at a time. If you are interested in either organising a session for your staff or attending a session please contact Steve Cridland email@example.com

"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
