In March the Prime Minister, David Cameron, launched the PM’s challenge on dementia - a challenge to the whole of society as well as government. It will focus on three key areas:

  • Driving improvements in health and care

  • Creating dementia friendly communities

  • Better research

People living with dementia want to remain independent for as long as possible, with the right support they can achieve this.

The Design Council in partnership with the Department of Health has funded and supported the development of five innovative new solutions that can improve the quality of life for people living with dementia, and aid the development of dementia friendly communities.

The prototypes of these five designs will be launched at a Design Council event on Thursday 26 April. To learn more abot this exciting project and find out how you can visit the design exhibition go to the Design Council website.
