Having a voice

Would you like to get more involved in in advocating for services and support, for younger people living with dementia or for family members? Some younger people living with young onset dementia and their families in Worcestershire have been working together to support the development of services and support. This leaflet describes what we do in a bit more depth. In recent months the group have been involved in;

  • Influencing the development of the tender for the one to one service
  • Presentations at conferences and teaching staff about living with young onset dementia
  • Supporting the evaluation of the DEEP network
  • Supporting the development of a website for people living with young onset dementia

This group belongs to the DEEP Network (Dementia Engagement and Empowerment Project). To find out more about the work of this network, please visit their website www.dementiavoices.org.uk
