Alzheimer’s Society’s Northern Ireland Dementia Friendly Awards

Alzheimer’s Society’s Northern Ireland Dementia Friendly Awards are on the lookout for people in Belfast who are improving the lives of those affected by dementia

Now in their fourth year, the awards celebrate people who are raising awareness, changing attitudes and challenging misunderstanding around dementia

Dementia devastates lives and by 2021, 1 million people will be living with the condition. The awards team wants to hear from people who are leading the dementia movement, inspiring others and are determined to transform the dementia landscape forever.

This year there are 9 awards up for grabs across 7 categories, including:

The team are also introducing new categories to celebrate trailblazer of the year and youth organisation of the year.

Last year’s winners included Lenny White the mobile barber from Belfast, Dementia Friendly Larne, and Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue service.

Bernadine McCrory, Northern Ireland Director for Alzheimer’s Society, said:

“I’m keen to see a variety of entrants from Belfast as there’s some terrific dementia-friendly work taking place here throughout the year.

“Every day we hear examples of people in the community who’ve made a real difference to the lives of people with dementia. This year’s awards will give them the recognition they truly deserve.”

Anyone who has made a difference to the lives of people affected by dementia is encouraged to enter. Industry experts will unite with people affected by dementia to choose the winners.

Nominations close on Monday 20 August.  Enter by searching ‘Dementia Friendly Awards’ at alzheimers.org.uk. Entrants can nominate themselves or others.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Belfast in November.
