Influencing others

Enabling younger people to have a voice nationally

We actively work with others to share our knowledge, improve public and professional understanding of the impact of young onset dementia and the support needed.  In particular we see enabling people whose lives are affected by young onset dementia to have more powerful influence as a natural part of our support work.

The Young Dementia Network which we have initiated offers lots of opportunities to improve understanding of young onset dementia and achieve better support and information.  nd we seek connections with other networks, individuals and organisations to ensure a young onset perspective in strategies, policies and other activity that affects every day life.

On 1 November 2020, YoungDementia UK merged with Dementia UK.  More information about the merger can be found here.
