About Dementia

Age Scotland's About Dementia project is Scotland’s forum for improving lives. Funded for five years by Life Changes Trust, we work with people living with dementia and those who support them to shape the policy and practice that affects them in everyday life. Launched in 2019, we have been travelling around Scotland to find out what needs to change for people affected by dementia, and what we can do together to make these changes happen. The project covers many areas of life, including transport, housing, human rights, and technology.

Our 2021 Manifesto

Earlier this year, we launched our manifesto for the 2021 Scottish Parliament Elections. Our manifesto looks at the challenges facing people living with dementia and unpaid carers and the impact on their human rights. We're asking all of Scotland’s political parties to adopt it as a blueprint for making these rights a reality.
