Step Change Design – “Why don’t we go into the garden”

Date:  27th May  2020

Aim: This masterclass for care setting staff will identify the reasons why their outside spaces are not used to their full potential, and to explore ways to create a more active and meaningful outside space for their residents, particularly those living with dementia.
