About the project
Age Scotland is proud to host About Dementia: Shaping Our Worlds Together – Scotland’s forum for improving lives. Launched in April 2019 thanks to funding from the Life Changes Trust we work with people affected by dementia to make changes to the things that are most important to them. We know that there has been a lot of good work being done around Scotland both nationally and locally, but we also know that many people affected by dementia are still struggling to get the support they need when they need it. The About Dementia project believes that people with dementia and unpaid carers are in the best position to say what is and isn’t working and most importantly, how to do it better.
Over the next five years we will bring together people affected by dementia, and organisations who are interested in working for change, to look at how we can improve policy and practice across many different areas of life.
