About dementia meeting

What are the groups?

Over the course of the five years, About Dementia will look in detail at 15 topics in relation to dementia policy and practice. Below is a list of the topics.

  • Befriending
  • 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
  • Technology
  • The Arts
  • Transport and Mobility

Work in each of these areas will be undertaken by groups within the larger forum. Each group will run for two years, with the exception of the group on Prevention, which will run for all five years of the project. We will start four new groups each year.

The four groups that started in 2019 are:

  • Dementia Prevention
  • Human Rights of Unpaid Carers
  • Housing and Home
  • Transport and Mobility

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

How to get involved

Each group will meet four times per year in different locations around Scotland, as will the main forum.

By signing up to become a forum member, you can 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, such as via video recording and online messaging.
