Dementia Action Week takes place on 21-27 May
For Dementia Action Week, everyone is being asked to take actions big and small to improve the lives of people affected by dementia.
In the UK, one person develops dementia every three minutes. Yet too many people living with dementia face the condition alone and excluded from society.
There is a strong movement for change, to create a dementia-friendly UK where people with dementia are included and supported to live the lives they want.
Events will also be taking place across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
