Have your say

Alzheimer Scotland works alongside our members, people with dementia, their families and carers to continue to be a successful force for change.  Whether through awareness raising, campaigning during an election or meeting with decision-makers and elected officials, our campaigning work is always more effective, more persuasive and more meaningful when it comes from people sharing their lived experience.

There are several ways to get involved:

Local Campaigning

Alzheimer Scotland's priority is local campaigning, because the decisions that most affect the lives of people with dementia, their carers and families are made locally.

Campaigning varies from place to place, but it's all built on the experience and activity of Alzheimer Scotland members, people with dementia, their carers and families. 

Contact your local Dementia Advisor to find out what campaigning groups are available in your area, or email [email protected] 

National Campaigning

If you are a person with dementia

You may be interested in the work of the Scottish Dementia Working Group (SDWG), the independent voice of people with dementia within Alzheimer Scotland. The Group is run for, and by, people with dementia.  

If you care for, or previously cared for a person with dementia

Alzheimer Scotland’s National Dementia Carers Action Network (NDCAN) is a national campaigning and awareness raising group whose members all have experience of caring for someone with dementia.

If you would like further information on any aspect of our campaigning work, please email [email protected] or call our Freephone 24 hour Dementia Helpline on 0808 808 3000.
