You will also note we have no affiliation with the Alzheimers Society and have strong views on this national charity, which is why we have no links to them on our site. Having no offices or paid staff we rely solely on donations or small grants to keep our network running. We also do not promote the Dementia friends scheme which we have found to be non effective and often misleads those who volunteer to train to have knowledge of dementia! If you really want to know the facts ask someone with the condition or their carer and they will tell you.
We are grateful to DEEP and the Joseph Rowntree foundation and other contributors to DEEP funding for their help to finance the setting up of this network for people affected by dementia 2019
