An invite to join national Demenita Advisory Panel
People living with dementia are being invited to join a new panel to help shape policy and delivery.
The independent national group will also be open to unpaid carers to ensure that the Scottish Government is fully considering the impact of policy and funding decisions on those who experience them first-hand.
Work will begin with the development of an application and assessment process, with the expectation that it will be established before the end of the year.
To apply to be part of the lived experience panel, or for more information, contact [email protected] or view this poster. The closing date for expressions of interest is 20 June 2022.
The lived experience panel will be in addition to existing groups and networks already working with the government.
The Scottish Government will ensure support, such as BSL interpreters, will be available to those requiring it to enable them to participate in the group.
