Scotland’s Dementia Awards provide an opportunity for professionals and communities, who are committed to enhancing the health, well being and experience of people with dementia and their families, to have their work recognised and promoted. The award scheme will help showcase the creativity, innovation and dedication that makes a real difference to the daily lives of people with dementia and their families. It aims to clearly demonstrate how, across Scotland, policy is being sustainably put into best shared practice. The awards celebrate good ideas, meaningful partnership working and practice excellence.

Scotland’s Dementia Awards provide entrants with the opportunity to share their work with others who appreciate its value and recognise its power to positively change practice and influence lives. As such, they are motivational for participants and influential on the wider audience of practitioners, families and communities with an interest in dementia.
