Better support for BAME people living with dementia during the Covid-19 pandemic

The Race Equality Foundation has been awarded a grant by the Department of Health and Social Care to lead a programme with Black South West Network, Caribbean African Health Network and Friends Families and Travellers, to work with 21 voluntary and community organisations to support black, Asian, and minority ethnic people living with dementia and their carers, in England during the coronavirus pandemic. The work is being supported by Toby Williamson Consultancy, a member of the NDAA. You can read more about the programme here including a link to the programme’s first newsletter and a list of the organisations involved. The Race Equality Foundation will be producing a range of resources about Covid-19 and guidance on social restrictions that will be translated into a number of languages.

They would appreciate people filling this out and the link being circulated to  relevant contacts and networks.
