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!

2016 Award winners announced!

Dementia friendly awards

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

There are 3 finalists per award. All finalists will be invited to attend the awards ceremony in either at Church House, London on 30 November 2016 (England & Wales finalists) or at The Europa Hotel, Belfast on 12 October 2016 (Northern Ireland finalists).
