Our vision, mission & values

Our vision

A society in which people affected by dementia will live well and be valued.

Our mission

  • We develop and provide specialised, enabling services for individuals with young onset dementia and their families. 

  • We help people to understand the impact of young onset dementia. 

  • We work collaboratively with individuals, families and organisations to improve the experience of living with young onset dementia. 

Our values

Within our team and membership and to guide our work and relationships with others, we try to always listen carefully, work respectfully and act positively. We particularly value the personal and unique experience of people who live with or understand the impact of young onset dementia. 

Our professional approach means that we can be relied upon and understand our privileged role in the lives of people we work with. We want the most from life ourselves and want that for people with young onset dementia. So we seek creative ways to enrich lives and to inspire others to do the same. We envisage working in this way until dementia is preventable or curable. 

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