We have now launched an innovative series of short films in six different languages giving information about dementia and relevant support services in the city. We commissioned the six short films - in Urdu, Punjabi, Cantonese, Somali, Polish and English-language - to address the stigma, misunderstanding and lack of accurate information currently available for the culturally diverse communities across the city. You can now view the films from our homepage or via our YouTube channel and hardcopies are available from 0117 904 5151
Some of the great feedback we have already received:
Participants/community leaders: “The films are fantastic as they are so respectful of culture and language. Beautifully done, with great thought. I can see the care and attention that have been put into them”
“Great work well done to you and the rest of the Team”.
Bristol BME Voice: “Fantastic short films on Dementia from @BristolDWS available in 6 languages!”
Local Councillor: “Thank you so much - what a great resource"
Local MPs: "This information is very valuable" / "Thank you once again for bringing these valuable educational resources to my attention"
Marvin Rees, Bristol Mayor: “Thank you for sharing these films with me. They will be a really useful tool for engaging with those communities who may otherwise find it difficult to access information on dementia.”
