Dementia Challenge Projects

The Prime Minister’s challenge on dementia was launched in England by David Cameron in March 2012. Running between 2012 and 2015 its purpose is to increase public awareness about dementia, to secure improvements in the quality of care experienced by people living with dementia and to stimulate research in this field. As a response NHS South of England launched its Dementia Challenge  as a way of targeting funding to projects responsive to the Prime Minister’s challenge.  There are a number of projects running across the Thames Valley, some of which are discussed in more detail according to the region in which they are happening.  In all, seventeen projects were funded in our region
