Influencing change

The Young Dementia Network is an influencing community of people seeking to improve lives in two principle ways:

  1. Campaigning to improve understanding, awareness and to create positive change on our own and as part of wider collaborations such as One Dementia Voice, a group of the UK’s dementia organisations which campaign jointly for the needs and rights of people affected by dementia
  2. Empowering people by
    • Informing and connecting people directly affected by young onset dementia – the individuals, family members and carers who are experts through lived experience
    • Increasing knowledge and expertise in professionals involved with young onset dementia

This is done through learning from each other and involvement with research, creation of resources and improvement of support.
