The Mayor

I am committed to making London a Dementia Friendly city, including on the transport network. Transport for London (TfL) works with charities, such as the Alzheimer's Society, to improve wayfinding and signage, accessible information, infrastructure and training for staff across the network. TfL also has a trained Dementia Friends Champion, who is advising staff on how to assist people with dementia.
