Young Dementia Network

The Young Dementia Network aims to influence policy and encourage better young onset services across the UK. The Network have written a set of recommendations detailing how younger people with dementia and their families can be well supported. Their aim is for them to be adopted across the UK.

These priorities have been identified by people affected by young onset dementia:

  1. To encourage the development of research and evidence about young onset dementia so we can better understand how many people are affected and what works best to support them.
  2. To create and contribute towards resources and information about young onset dementia.
  3. To improve understanding of young onset dementia amongst health and social care professionals, families affected by young onset dementia and the general public.
