Dementia Friendly Awards 2016

Iceland sponsor

The Dementia Friendly Awards are an annual celebration of the achievements of individuals, organisations, projects and partnerships in creating dementia-friendly communities around the UK.

The awards recognise the part that everyone has to play in creating safe, friendly and supportive communities for people with dementia, from volunteers and carers to hairdressers and hospitals; schools and sports clubs to community groups and corporations.

Now in their third year, the 2016 awards have attracted 400 entries - our highest number of nominations to date!

Dementia Friendly Awards

This year's finalists were selected by people with dementia and their carers, as well as our judging panels of industry experts. 8 groups of service users were involved in reviewing and ranking nominations, while judges made their own shortlists. The scores from both judging stages were added together for each nomination and both stages carry the same weight.

3 finalists were selected for each award, and attended the awards ceremony at either Church House, London on 30 November 2016 (England & Wales finalists) or at The Europa Hotel, Belfast on 12 October 2016 (Northern Ireland finalists).
