13 Aug London Southend airport wins Dementia Friendly Transport of the Year Award
London Southend Airport has been voted most dementia friendly transport provider by the Southend, Castlepoint and Rochford Dementia Action Alliance.
Cassie Searle – Dementia Action Alliance Co-ordinator for Southend, Castle Point and Rochford Dementia Community Support Team – said “It’s a pleasure to give this award to London Southend Airport, the dedication and passion from staff is amazing to see and the difference the assistance scheme has made to those travelling with dementia is phenomenal.”
The airport operates a progressive scheme to assist passengers with hidden disabilities who may require additional support.
The discreet blue wristband is available for passengers with hidden disabilities and their families to wear as a subtle sign to airport staff that additional support or help may be required.
