About dementia meeting

What are sub-groups?

Over the course of the project, About Dementia will look in detail at fifteen topics in relation to dementia policy and practice, which we call sub-groups. For each of these sub-groups, we will hold meetings around Scotland and online to find out from people with lived experience of dementia what changes they want to see. We will then work together towards making these changes happen.

Anyone can be involved in a sub-group, and all contributions are welcomed. You can attend meetings in person or online, share your thoughts and experiences over email or phone, or just be kept updated on the work of that sub-group.

Our sub-group topics are:

  • Befriending and Peer Support
  • Black and Minority Ethnic Communities
  • Dementia Friendly Communities
  • Dementia Prevention
  • Faith and Belief
  • Financial Inclusion
  • Housing and Home
  • Human Rights of People Living with Dementia
  • Human Rights of Unpaid Carers
  • Information, Advice, and Independent Advocacy
  • LGBTQI+ Community
  • Sport and Physical Activity
  • Technology
  • The Arts
  • Transport and Mobility

As of Summer 2021, we have several active sub-groups:

  • The Human Rights of Unpaid Carers
  • The Human Rights of People Living with Dementia
  • Befriending and Peer Support
  • Sport and Physical Activity
  • Technology

The work of each sub-group is underpinned by our project values: equality, human rights, relationship-centred care, peer support, early intervention, and prevention.

How to get involved

By signing up to join our project mailing list, you will be kept informed about the groups that interest you. We will update you on the work of the group, and let you know about upcoming meetings and the ways that you can be involved. You can attend group meetings in person, or send contributions via email, phone call, or post. We are continuing to develop other ways to be involved, and are happy to support you to be involved in the ways you would like.
