Dementia Policy and Practice Forum
Thanks to a ground-breaking investment of £2.5 million from the Life Changes Trust, in 2019 Age Scotland will be working with a huge number of organisations, the University of Edinburgh and Queen Margaret University to deliver two bold new initiatives; a National Forum for Dementia Policy and Practice and a School of Leadership in Dementia. Both projects will support people with dementia and carers to become experts, leaders and influencers in Scotland.
The creation of the National Forum will bring together people with experience and expertise in dementia, locally and nationally, with the aim of evidencing what will create better lives for people with dementia and unpaid carers. The Forum will provide space to scrutinise policy and practice in many areas, including housing and dementia, sport and dementia, the arts and dementia, and human rights and dementia. We are incredibly proud that so many wonderful organisations are partnering with us to deliver this ground-breaking Policy and Practice Forum.
