dc.description.abstractThis article presents an evaluation of the Good Life Festival, an event co-produced by people living with dementia, Salford University Dementia Institute, Alzheimer’s Society Salford and Salford Adventures. Co-production was a new way of working and was important because people living with dementia said they would like an event organised ‘for people with dementia by people with dementia’. A dementia-friendly evaluation form was circulated at the event. Of the 80 people who attended, 35 completed the evaluation form, all of whom said they enjoyed the event. Of these, 32 (91%) had learned something new and 27 (77%) left feeling more positive about living with dementia. Event attendees and organisers also provided qualitative feedback. Recommendations based on what we learned from planning and running the event are provided, which include having a media strategy in place and to send a follow-up letter to remind people about the information about resources/services advertised on the day.
