Why is your organisation committed to the NDAA and the Dementia Statements?

The APPG on Dementia is committed to the NDAA because we are supportive of partnership working and ensuring that leading organisations committed to transforming health and social care outcomes for people with dementia are best enabled to make that happen – either through connecting, sharing best practice and taking supporting action. The Dementia Statements are at the core of how the APPG on Dementia conducts its activity – the APPG takes a rights-based approach to achieving change for people with dementia and use the Statements as a basis for choosing topics for inquiry. For example, this year the APPG is holding an inquiry into dementia and disability, which is looking at the challenges people with dementia face in having their disability rights upheld.
