Dementia Friendly London
Find out how dementia affects London and the steps we’re taking to make London the first dementia-friendly capital city in the world.
What will a Dementia Friendly London look like?
A Dementia Friendly London is an inclusive and compassionate city where all Londoners affected by dementia are empowered and supported to live well.
People affected by dementia will:
- travel to where they want to go safely
- live somewhere they feel supported, understood and included in community life
- receive the help they need to access quality health, care and support services when and where they require it
- be able to participate in all that London has to offer in arts, culture and leisure
- feel confident to visit local high streets and town centres.
On 21st May 2018, to mark the start of Dementia Action Week, organisations from across London – including Transport for London and the Metropolitan Police – came together at the Dementia Friendly London Summit and pledged to take action to make this vision a reality.
What is our vision for the future?
By 2022, we want to see:
- 2,000 organisations that are more dementia friendly
- 500,000 Dementia Friends taking action, big or small, to improve the everyday lives of people affected by dementia
- Every London borough working towards becoming a dementia-friendly community
- Meaningful involvement of people affected by dementia
