Organisation Summary

YoungDementia UK enables younger people and their families to live well with dementia. We provide tailored, direct support and a welcoming community for people in Oxfordshire and adjoining counties – from diagnosis to beyond bereavement. Regionally and nationally, we seek to promote a better understanding of young onset dementia among professionals and the public.

What sectors does your organisation work in?

Social Care, Welfare

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

We are dedicated to supporting people with young onset dementia, which is one of the DAAs Seldom Heard Groups. Recognising that there is little support, resources and policy that helps people with the condition, Youngdementia UK created an initiative to work in collaboration with other organisations, professionals and people affected by young onset dementia. This is called the Young Dementia Network. Many of the organisations are DAA members and we are all working towards positive change.
