About the Dementia Friendly Awards

In 2013, we launched the annual Dementia Friendly Awards.

The awards celebrate and showcase the achievements of individuals, groups and organisations across the UK who have led the way on creating dementia-friendly communities and improving the lives of everybody affected by dementia.

Our 2019 winners were announced at ceremonies in Belfast on 25 November and London on 27 November.
