The EFID workshop 'Exchange of practice and development of indicators to capture change' draws from the interest shown by participants in the Dublin workshop 2015, to explore indicators to communicate the value of their projects.
The discussion built on the pillars (1. raising awareness; 2. inclusion, involvement, participation; 3. building strategic networks) that emerged from the research commissioned by EFID and undertaken by the Mental Health Foundation.

The event took place in Bruges and Aalbeke, on 10 and 11 May 2016. The workshop provided a stimulating networking and learning space to reflect on how to show the impact of different dementia-friendly initiatives in Europe. The workshop also aimed to consolidate the EFID network of practitioners of dementia-friendly environment projects.
EFID presented the newly published research and collection of case studies of ‘dementia-friendly communities’ across Europe. You can find the publications in the resources.
Furthermore, EFID awardees supported by the capacity strengthening fund (CSF) in 2015, shared the learning gained through the joint-projects and go-and-see visits.

Jo Vandeurzen, Flemish Minister for Welfare, Public Health and Family, addressed the participants of the workshop in a video-message (see below).
