The number of people estimated to be living with dementia globally is 44 million, and it is thought that this number will double by 2030. In the UK, it is estimated that around 850,000 people have dementia. This progressive condition can have a devastating effect, not just on the person who has dementia, but also on families, carers and wider society.

The ‘Challenge on Dementia’ set out what the Government wanted to see in place by 2020 in order for England to be the best country in the world for dementia care and support and for people with dementia, their carers and families to live. With presentations about workforce progress and NICE guidelines, this forum will consider how close we have come to achieving those aims and what the next steps are.

Including exemplary case studies of what is working across health and social care. From successful integrated care models to carer support and public awareness promotions.
