Dementia Friendly Welsh Assembly Campaign

We are campaigning to make the National Assembly for Wales dementia friendly.

Ann Jones AM and Elin Jones AM

Alzheimer's Society Cymru is calling on the National Assembly for Wales to become dementia friendly. 

To be dementia friendly, we are challenging the National Assembly to do the following:

  • Make sure all AMs become Dementia Friends by taking part in an information session
  • Make adaptations to the Assembly Estate (the Senedd, the Pierhead building and Tŷ Hywel) to make it easier for people living with dementia to navigate

  • Make sure civil servants consider people living with dementia when drafting policies

Are your Assembly Members Dementia Friends?

Everyone in Wales has 5 Assembly Members representing them (1 constituency AM and 4 regional AMs). 

You can find out who your AMs are on the National Assembly for Wales website. 

Contact your Assembly Members

If your AMs aren't all on our list of Dementia Friends, you can email them to ask them to become one. 

Email my AMs

The AMs in the table below are already Dementia Friends.

Assembly Estate

In February 2018, members of our Focus on Dementia Network did a 'mystery shop' of the Senedd. They reported back to us with some recommendations to make it easier to navigate.

We are now working with the Estates and Facilities team to make changes to signs around the building.
