The Young Dementia Network is gaining momentum and is making progress since its launch in late 2016. Ever growing, we have over 4000 members including people living with young onset dementia, family members and friends and a wide range of professionals and people with an interest in the condition.
Our dedicated membership is actively working to achieve tangible improvements over the longer term. So much of our activity must be a ‘work in progress’, with shorter term gains becoming both stepping stonesto the future and benefits for people now.
Here is a selection of the Network’s positive work so far – we are:
influencing aspects of the national dementia strategy to offer a young onset dementia perspective
advising on improvements to young onset dementia prevalence data
creating and promoting young onset dementia resources to improve national standards of practice
