Our future plans

The Young Dementia Network is currently undergoing a review to ensure its priorities and activities over the next three years have the greatest impact in line with the Network’s overall purpose.  This plan is being informed by:

  • our wish to be stronger and make the biggest possible impact
  • the greatest needs of people affected by young onset dementia
  • considering the impact of Covid-19 on people’s needs
  • what our members tell us they want us to do
  • a reflection on our past achievements and their impact and effectiveness
  • our existing agreed priorities and ideas
  • an understanding of the resources required

Future activities and projects

We have already identified a range of possible future activities and projects which includes:

  • developing a community of young onset dementia practice for different professions
  • seeking to include young onset in the study / training of a range of professions
  • creating a nationally recognised standard for young onset dementia services
  • improving young onset dementia service commissioning and development
  • improving and updating some of our existing resources
  • developing our range of resources for GPs, memory and neurology clinics
