Dementia Action Week takes place on 21-27 May and we will be asking everyone 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.
We will be running several events during Dementia Action Week to highlight the work we do in North Tyneside for those who care for and those living with dementia.
Peer Group Monday 21st
North Shields Sing along Memories Monday 21st
