After a very successful meeting with Kieran from the HRH Prince`s Trust Torquay I am happy to announce that they and the Torbay Dementia Action Alliance will be working together this year and in the future, not only to help the people involved with the Prince`s Trust achieve their goals but also helping other to understand the problems that people with Dementia face and their carers.


This will be done by holding a series of events together over the coming months / years. The people who join the Prince`s Trust are mostly between 16 and 18yrs old and to have them included in what we do here within the TDAA is not only a great opportunity but also an honour. By listening to our youth of today we can learn so much and by, in return, teaching them about Dementia we will hopefully reduce the Stigma that’s attached to it and as they grow into responsible adults they will take the message with them, in life that Dementia is a disease of the brain, and not just an age related disease.


Very best wishes, Norrms (Founder of the Torbay Dementia Action Alliance)

    What a wonder scheme! This can bring so much understanding to the young but also open up our eyes to the compassion they give. Most young people do have their hearts in the right place despite bad press! Good luck!

    This is wonderful and inspiring news for people with dementia, their family and friends. What could be more important than ” ‘Dementia Awareness’ starting with the young”, starting during the Prime Minister’s ‘Dementia Challenge’.Year?. His Royal Highness Prince Charles’ Princes’ Trust always does a fantastic job for young people, so here’s hoping both young and old will benefit in many positive ways from this initiative. As a Daughter to Mum in year 15 of Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease, I feel personally very touched by this news today. All best, Heather Pearson (Facebook News Campaign supporting the Alzheimer’s Society)
