The Centre of Accessible Environments published a fuller version of

Design. More recently a number of us have been providing advice to the
development of PAS 1365 “Code of practice for the recognition of
dementia-friendly communities,” a document sponsored by the Alzheimer’s
Society.. Which is soon to be published by the British Standards
The Need for Collective Guidance
