Our young onset dementia webinars

We host a monthly series of FREE young onset dementia webinars which began in October 2020.  They bring together Young Dementia Network members, people living with young onset dementia, family members, professionals working in the field and people interested in young onset dementia to create an opportunity to connect, support and inform each other.

We add to the programme regularly, so please check back for more information or sign up to receive our newsletters here to find out the details of upcoming webinars.  Catch up with past webinars and sign up for future ones, via the links below.
