YoungDementia UK is the only national charity dedicated to supporting people living with young onset dementia (under 65 years) and their partners and families. Our goal is that by 2022 everyone affected by young onset dementia has access to specialist support to adapt and live life.
In response to the inadequate support for people with young onset dementia in most areas of the UK, we are currently developing an ambitious programme of national initiatives. These include widening our direct engagement through the development of regionals hubs; delivering a digital support service and, through collaborative initiatives such as the Young Dementia Network, to campaign with and behalf of all those with young onset dementia for the development and improvement of national services.
At an important and interesting time in the development of YoungDementia UK, we are looking for three motivated people to join our Board. We are particularly looking for people who have either experience of campaigning at a national level in the health and welfare sector; in IT strategic development and implementation or in involving members in shaping services.
As a Trustee you will play a key role in steering our strategic development over the next three years and in helping us rollout our national programme to ensure we support everyone affected by young onset dementia. In addition to attendance at quarterly board meetings, our Trustees contribute through membership of a number of working groups, supporting the development of specific areas of our work and attending events.
If you have the skills and experience we are looking for, are prepared to dedicate your time and energy and are motivated to improve the lives of people with young onset dementia, please contact us.

Deadline for applications is Friday 18 October.
