Alzheimer Scotland works nationally and locally to make sure that nobody faces dementia alone. Our member led campaigning and awareness raising groups, the Scottish Dementia Working Group (SDWG) and the National Dementia Carers Action Network (NDCAN) help us to ensure that the voices of people living with dementia and unpaid carers are always heard. We want decision makers to listen to people with lived experience of dementia when making decisions which will impact on their lives. We make sure that people who make decisions about policy, strategy, services, support and legislation see dementia as a priority and understand what is needed to ensure people are well supported. By working alongside people with dementia, their families and carers, and with the Scottish Government, Local Authorities, Health Boards, Integrated Joint Boards, universities, businesses, community groups and the public, we can make sure as many people as possible are aware of dementia and understand how they can help people with dementia live well with the condition.
