Age Scotland's Dementia Training Project

Around 93,000 people in Scotland today are living with dementia and this number is forecast to increase over the next decade. Early diagnosis of the condition is crucial and can help prolong the quality of life for people living with dementia.

Funded by the Life Changes Trust and the Robertson Trust, Age Scotland’s dementia training team seeks to raise awareness of dementia, the signs and symptoms and how to be inclusive of people living with the condition.

In November 2021, with the support of our colleagues from About Dementia, we hosted our first ever national learning event, involving over 120 participants, 6 keynote speakers and 21 workshops. You can download a copy of the event report here.
