Welcome to Dementia Awareness Week 2022! The week will run from Monday 30 May until Sunday 5 June with the aim of raising awareness of dementia and helping improve the lives of people with dementia, their families and carers. This year's theme is 'Let's Prevent, Care, Cure dementia together' and over the week there will be a series of events, including our Tea & Blether campaign which will run throughout both Dementia Awareness Week and June. 

Our Chief Executive, Henry Simmons has a special Dementia Awareness Week message that reflects on this year's theme. You can read this here

The purple 'Prevent, Care, Cure' boxes below will take you to more information about our work on each part of the theme.
