Your invitation to the National Dementia Dialogue events 2015

Have your say...

Organised in partnership by the Scottish Government, Alzheimer Scotland, the Scottish Dementia Working Group and the National Dementia Carers Action Network. 

Scotland’s second 3-year National Dementia Strategy was launched in 2013 with the aim of continuing to improve diagnosis rates and post-diagnostic support, ensuring the highest quality of care and support for people with dementia at every stage of the illness, improving service response in acute care and supporting the growth of dementia-friendly communities.

The Scottish Government is now reviewing the progress of the strategy and a 3rd National Dementia Strategy for Scotland will be produced in 2016.

This is an invitation for all interested parties across Scotland to comment on the progress of the strategy to date, identify the gaps, opportunities and priorities and to help shape the direction of the next strategy. Find out more here.

5 free events to choose from...

We have arranged five free dialogue events across Scotland, for:
  • people with dementia, carers (family members, partners and friends) to talk in small groups to discuss and share with others their views on the quality of services and how they can be improved to meet their needs.
  • all health, social care and other professionals who may have a responsibility for implementing the strategy to discuss issues for implementation and action locally.
  • others who have an interest in this area (researchers, academics, public health professionals etc) to contribute to these discussions and talk about other aspects of Scotland's overall approach to dementia.
To book your space today please select from one of the following events. Places will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis. All event enquiries should be emailed to or call on 0141 410 1072.
