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

We believe that it is important that people can keep being themselves for as long as they possibly can and that when they need people to act on their behalf, that this is done in accordance with their wishes and how they have lived their lives. Expert advice, safeguarding and support are vital for people who have become vulnerable.
