Latest Guidance for Expressions of Interest Regarding Funding to Improve Care Environments for People with Dementia (Department of Health, Dementia)


Expressions of interest for funding to improve the surroundings of people living with dementia are currently being accepted from care providers.

Local authorities, working in partnership with social care providers and the NHS, are able to bid for a share of £50 million capital funding (2013-14) which is to be used for improving care environments. The aim is to help people with dementia and their carers manage their condition better. Details of the funding were first outlined on October 25th 2012 by Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt.

Further details, and instructions on how to register an interest / make an application to take part in the programme, are available online.
