Dementia Action Alliance

Summary

The Dementia Action Alliance consists of over 40 organisations committed to improving the quality of life of people living with dementia in the UK (and that of the millions of people who care for these persons).

“There are 750,000 people with dementia in the UK and this number is set to grow to over one million people by 2025. The financial cost of dementia in the UK is £20 billion each year and growing.”

The National Dementia Declaration

Members of the Dementia Action Alliance have signed up to a National Dementia Declaration. This charter has been created in partnership with dementia sufferers and their carers.

The National Dementia Declaration explains the many and pressing challenges presented to society by dementia. It outlines the outcomes which the Dementia Action Alliance will work to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. Outcomes include ensuring people with dementia have choice and control over the decisions about their lives, and promoting the conditions whereby they may come to feel generally more valued as citizens and as persons.
