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 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
Vice-Chairs: Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, Baroness Ritchie of Downpatrick, Dr James Davies MP, Dr Lisa Cameron MP, Elliot Colburn MP, Jeremy Wright MP, Judith Cummins MP, Marie Rimmer MP, Mark Menzies MP, Simon Baynes MP.
APPG Inquiry - Dementia research in the UK: Making the case for the Dementia Moonshot
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia, is undertaking an inquiry into dementia research in the UK and the Government’s commitment to implement a ‘Dementia Moonshot’. The inquiry will examine the current state of dementia research in the UK, how this compares internationally and how the pandemic has impacted the research field.
The inquiry will also consider what support the Government can give to the sector – including the realisation of their commitment to double dementia research funding to £160m per year – and how this money can be best spent to ensure that the UK is a world leader in dementia research.
