Apply now to become one of Scotland’s next Dementia Champions

We are welcoming applications for the next Dementia Champions professional development course.

Would you like to take part in a free five day programme delivered at the enhanced dementia practice level? The programme is open to people working in either health or social services. Social service applicants must be supported by their employer and will need to demonstrate an ability to inspire and effect positive change.

The course will be delivered by the University of the West of Scotland and Alzheimer Scotland in five locations across Scotland between April and August 2017.

What is a Dementia Champion?

Within their existing roles and through a diverse range of activities Dementia Champions seek to improve the complete care and support experience for people with dementia, their families and carers; primarily in acute general hospital settings, but also in the community. There are currently over 80 Dementia Champions active in social service roles in Scotland, including social work, day care, care at home, care home and housing support across public, independent and third sector organisations. Social service Dementia Champions work alongside over 500 Dementia Champions working in health services.
