Read a blog written by Sarah Griffiths from The National Archives on ‘Dementia Awareness Week, outreach and the joys of living creatively’.

The piece, written for #Dementia ActionWeek, includes details of partnership work with NAPA for our Only Connect Pen Pals project, and shows ways that care settings can use archive resources to develop creative activities and community connections.

Five Photos is an online resource designed to encourage people to engage creatively with The National Archives collections. It aims to provide a mindful, social or reminiscence-based activity for those shielding or in care home settings.
