Ongoing Campaigns

Dementia Awareness Campaign

The Department of Health are encouraging people to talk to their loved ones who are showing signs of dementia.

We appreciate this conversation will not be an easy one; but having that conversation will help to encourage loved ones to visit their GP.

The Department of Health will be putting information our via both television and print to get the message to as many people as possible.

For more information and to find out some of the famous faces supporting this campaign, please go to the Department of Health's website

Care in Crisis

Many older people are being let down in later life by poor quality care and support.

The Geovernment has issued a White Paper on their plans for reforms and older people have influenced this by sharing their experiences.

It is vital that all older people receive the care and support they need, when they need it and they should not have to worry about how they will afford it.

For more information on this campaign and how you can get involved please look at Age UK's national website.
