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.

Applications Now Open for Dementia Friendly Communities Funding

Applications are now open to organisations seeking funding to support dementia-friendly communities across Scotland. The open fund is one strand of a larger investment, which we're delivering in partnership with the Scottish Government between 2022 and 2023. This strand of funding is focused on empowering Dementia Friendly Communities, with a total of £166,632 to be distributed. Applications are welcomed from anywhere in Scotland, from any legally constituted organisations or group of organisations looking for funding to create or sustain their Dementia Friendly Community. For more information, view our application guidance.
