Secondary schools

Teach about dementia in your secondary school and help us create a dementia-friendly generation.

A third of young people know someone living with dementia. With over two million people developing dementia in the next ten years, most people will know someone affected by the condition in their lifetime.

We want every young person to understand what it's like to live with dementia. Help us make a Dementia Friendly Generation by teaching your secondary school students about dementia.

Hold an assembly

Ask pupils to design their own presentation about dementia to educate their peers, or use Alzheimer's Society's assumbly presentation to introduce dementia as a topic to students.

Make a difference in your community

Schools are uniquely placed to help change the lives of local people living with dementia. By embedding dementia awareness throughout school life, you can empower young people to take action and change the lives of local people affected by dementia.
