Our campaigning work in partnership

We work in partnership with organisations who share our vision for better care and support for everyone affected by dementia.

The Care and Support Alliance

In 2021 the Government announced long-awaited social care reforms. While some progress has been made, these reforms do not address some of the fundamental problems in social care – those of access, quality and workforce.

Too many families affected by dementia are struggling to access limited or inadequate services. Families are trying to fill the gaps in services themselves, with little support for their own needs. 

The Government promised to fix social care  – but social care isn’t fixed yet.

We are part part of the Care and Support Alliance (CSA) which represent over 70 of Britain’s leading charities campaigning alongside the millions of older people, disabled people and their carers who deserve decent care. 

On June 16, 2022 we took part in the Care and Support Alliance’s day of action on social care. We used Twitter to amplify the need for better social care system for families affected by dementia and shared quotes from families affected by dementia throughout the day.

We will continue working with the CSA to highlight the challenges that people are facing and the change that is needed.

National Voices

We are a member of National Voices, the leading coalition of health and social care charities in England bringing together over 190 members across the country.

The coalition brings charities, decision makers and citizens together so we can all change health and care for good.

In March 2022 on the second anniversary of the first Covid-19 lockdown in the UK, the government launched their ‘living with Covid’ plan. We signed a shared statement with National Voices which reflected on the toll that Covid has taken, and continues to take on people throughout the country. Our insights were included in this statement.
