Our annual review of 2018-2019, supporting people to ‘adapt and live life’ is out now!

We are delighted to share with you YoungDementia UK’s annual review which showcases our recent activities, achievements and strategic plans for the coming three years. 

Our goal is that by 2022 everyone affected by young onset dementia has access to specialist support to adapt and live life.  We have ambitious plans to achieve this by improving our digital services and by increasing local services through the creation of new regional young onset dementia hubs.  

We plan to build on our expertise and the work of the Young Dementia Network, to provide a national voice for the needs of people affected by dementia in mid-life.  Needs which we know all too well are very different to those of a person experiencing dementia in older age.

And we plan to continue to innovate and collaborate to improve young onset dementia services.  We know we can’t do this alone.   But by working with people affected by young onset dementia, professionals, service providers, dementia charities and commissioners we believe we can bring about change and improve service provision. 

Funding the charity’s work and our plans for the coming years continues to prove a challenge and we are so very grateful to the individuals, trusts and organisations who have supported our work in the last year.  We hope you will continue to show us your support in whatever way you can. 

We hope you will enjoy reading our summary of 2018-2019 and learning more about our exciting plans for the next three years.  We cannot achieve them without the contributions and support of others, but believe we are well placed to deliver much-needed improvements to young onset service provision and information which will help every person affected by dementia to adapt and live life.
