Virgin Atlantic are working with The Purple Angel
thanks to Caron Sprake, Purple Angel Ambassador.
Well Done Caron!!
Virgin Atlantic are working with the Purple Angel Association to give employees a greater understanding about dementia and how best to help any passengers with the condition.
Specially made videos and fact sheets are being designed and will shortly be available to staff members via their intranet and in training sessions.
Established in 2013 by Norman Mc Namarra, who himself has early onset dementia, the Purple Angel has rapidly become a globally recognised logo with nearly 200 volunteer Ambassadors worldwide.
Local and National businesses encourage employees to recognise that customers with dementia may have particular needs and how to help them.
Displaying a Purple Angel sign indicates to customers that staff have an understanding which helps to reduce stigma and isolation.
