The Young Dementia Network is an influencing body, a community of people seeking to improve lives in two principle ways:
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
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.
Network involvement opportunities
The Young Dementia Network provides opportunities for its members to collaborate, share experience and knowledge and learn from each other
