About the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia (APPG) is a cross party group made up of MPs and Peers with an interest in dementia.
The APPG is run in partnership with Alzheimer's Society, which provides administrative support and expert advice to the group.
Its aim is to raise awareness of dementia among parliamentarians and to influence legislation and policy making in order to improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers.
The Group meets several times a year and uses each meeting to focus on specific issues affecting people with dementia. It also conducts inquiries on issues that affect people living with dementia, and last year the focus was on dementia and co-morbidities.
Co-Chairs: Debbie Abrahams MP and Baroness Sally Greengross
Officers: Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP, Judith Cummins MP, Sir Edward Davey MP, Robert Courts MP, Nigel Mills MP, Sir Mike Penning MP
