Advocate Jeff Thurlow wins Community Spirit Award

In January, we were delighted to hear that Dementia Advocate Jeff Thurlow was recognised with the Community Spirit Award at the Lithgow City Council Ability Awards for his role in local dementia advocacy.

The awards were announced to coincide with and celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

Jeff Thurlow has spent the past two years advocating for change in his local community by establishing a Dementia-friendly community in Lithgow. 

Visit  to hear Jeff talk about why he is so passionate about changing the way people think about dementia.

Congratulations Jeff on this much-deserved achievement and thank you for all you do to help improve the lives of people living with dementia.
