Dementia Action Week

Take action and help improve the lives of people with dementia.

This year, Dementia Awareness Week is changing to Dementia Action Week (21 to 27 May). Raising awareness and offering support will always be important, but it’s time we all act to make change happen for people affected by dementia. 

In the UK, one person develops dementia every three minutes, yet too many people feel excluded and face the disease alone.

That’s why, this Dementia Action Week, we will be asking people to unite and take actions big and small to make a difference to the everyday lives of people with dementia. It could be as simple as being more patient in queues or helping make your business dementia-friendly.

Unite to make 2018 our biggest Week yet

There will be plenty of ways you can get involved in your local community, and across the country, during the Week. Be the first to hear more about the Week and get free awareness or fundraising materials by signing up below.

‘People are already aware. It’s action we now need. It’s help, it’s support. Turning into action week is absolutely the best thing I’ve heard.’
