Action Plan

The APPG on Dementia is a cross party group made up of MPs and Peers with an interest in dementia. Its aim is to raise awareness of dementia among parliamentarians and to influence legislation and policy making in order to improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers.

Commitment 1 - Relating to:

The APPG on Dementia will use all of the evidence that it has received for its current inquiry into dementia and disability and write a report on the inquiry topic.

The APPG on Dementia is currently analysing all of the evidence that it has received and will be using this evidence to draft a report due to be published in 2019.

  • We have the right to be recognised as who we are, to make choices about our lives including taking risks, and to contribute to society. Our diagnosis should not define us, nor should we be ashamed of it.

Commitment 2 - Relating to:

The APPG on Dementia will influence government on the recommendations within the report in order to drive change and improve outcomes for people with dementia.

 

How will your organisation achieve Commitment 2?

 

The APPG on Dementia will undertake a journey of general parliamentary promotion and campaigning focusing on the recommendations. Through utilising the roles of the Co-Chairs of the APPG, we are hopeful we will be able to drive local and national change. This means that the APPG will be working to influence parliament to ensure best practice becomes widespread and also that action is taken locally – due to their constituency role – to drive change based on the recommendations within the report.

  • We have the right to be recognised as who we are, to make choices about our lives including taking risks, and to contribute to society. Our diagnosis should not define us, nor should we be ashamed of it.

How will your organisation achieve Commitment 3?

 

The APPG on Dementia will hold roundtables and influencing events to ensure that stakeholders who are responsible for the actual implementation of the recommendations takes place and that these organisations are driving change where possible at a grassroots level.
