About the Dementia Hero Awards

Throughout the pandemic individuals, groups and organisations did outstanding things to support people affected by dementia. We want to recognise these dementia heroes.

The awards will recognise the inspirational achievements of those who care for people with dementia, those finding innovative solutions in research, and the campaigners and media fighting for the rights of people with dementia.
