Dementia Friendly Dunbar group welcomed to Holyrood

Visitors from local support group Dementia Friendly Dunbar were welcomed to the Scottish Parliament this week by Iain Gray MSP.

Mr Gray gave the visitors a tour of the Parliament building and answered their questions about his role and how laws are made at Holyrood.

Speaking after the visit, Iain Gray MSP said:

“With every year more Scots face the challenge of living with Dementia, more families the struggle of supporting their loved ones as it takes its toll.

“Several towns in East Lothian now have very active “dementia friendly” groups, supporting those people and their families, and working hard to ensure that shops and other facilities in the town are more understanding and supportive at dealing with dementia too.

“Dunbar is one of those towns, and I was very pleased to host the Dementia Friendly Dunbar group as they visited the Scottish Parliament, before heading off for a high tea.”
