YoungDementia UK is excited to announce the launch of the Young Dementia Network.
Tessa Gutteridge, Director of YoungDementia UK said:
‘We know first-hand the impact of dementia on younger people and their families and how isolating it can be. We believe that everyone affected should be well informed, feel connected to others and enabled to live life to the full. So we are creating a Network. A community that includes people living with young onset dementia, their family and friends, as well as organisations and professionals who work in the fields of dementia and social care’.
The Young Dementia Network will
Provide opportunities for members to share experience, knowledge and to learn from each other.
Encourage improved young onset services across the UK and influence and inform national and local policies.
The Network was launched at the Young Onset Dementia: Different Impact, Positive Solutions conference on 27 September 2016.
