CONFERENCE

ONE STEP AT A TIME

Tuesday, 17th September 2019 at The Place, York Place, Edinburgh

FAITH IN OLDER PEOPLE is delighted that so many people have downloaded the learning resource on this issue and working together we want to share an opportunity to hear about the various elements in the resource and to enable participants to bring their own experiences.

The conference will look at the key elements of supporting people, providing enabling spaces, thinking about worship and pastoral care and singing. Speakers include Professor Mary Marshall, Jenny Henderson, Diana Kerr and Rev Canon Dean Fostekew.

We look forward to welcoming you to this event.

If you would like to speak about your work at the conference please contact Director@fiop.org.uk and or book a place on

“ ….. and indeed I have downloaded and do refer to your excellent resource during the course of my work, not least because it is not afraid to go “back-to-basics” without patronising the target audience in the process.”  URC Minister

Supporting churches to build a supportive environment for people with dementia and their families

Faith in Older People published a Learning Resource to assist churches to support people with dementia in their congregations. Together with the Church of Scotland Guild we want to share what we have learned and to invite people from congregations to tell us about what they have been doing to support those who are experiencing dementia and their carers.

Join us for a good discussion; to give us feedback and to share your activities
