The project was undertaken by a volunteer group of local people living with dementia, as well as their carers and advocates, who designed, directed, and undertook who evaluated key public buildings and the spaces encountered on the journeys between them. The resulting report describes the methods used by group, and details their prioritised recommendations, for individual public buildings, and for public realm of Stirling City Centre as a whole.
