YoungDementia UK has created a series of Adapt films to help educate and inform people about young onset dementia. We hope they will be of particular use and interest to people who have been newly diagnosed and those who support them.
The films were funded by DEEP and the Shanly Foundation and are available for use by anyone who would like to share them, particularly at training courses, events and conferences. You can download our Adapt films from our YouTube channel. We would love to know if you plan to use them online or at an event and would be grateful if you could credit YoungDementia UK. Versions with subtitles will be coming soon!
We would appreciate your feedback and ideas for new topics we could focus on in future films - please email firstname.lastname@example.org
