What is the Emergency services strategic commitment on dementia?

Our Emergency services strategic commitment on dementia sets our three areas where organisations can collaboratively develop their people, places and policies to support people affected by dementia.

Once a service signs up, we’ll provide information and guidance, including some basic actions you can take to work towards becoming more dementia-friendly.

The commitment builds on existing dementia friendly policies and procedures and compliments the dementia-friendly business guide.

This commitment has been signed by:

  • The National Police Chiefs’ Council
