Aims and Objectives

In response to the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia 2020 and the 2015-16 Mandate from the Government to Health Education England (HEE) we are supporting the development of an informed and effective workforce for people living with dementia

This means health and social care staff involved in the care of people who may have dementia should have the necessary skills to provide the best quality care in the roles and settings where they work. This is being achieved through the delivery of effective basic training alongside continuous professional and vocational development in dementia.
