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 third 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 12 awards up for grabs across 10 categories, including:

  • Dementia Friendly Organisation
  • Community Partnership
  • Dementia Friends Champion
  • Innovation
  • Young person’s contribution
  • Journalist
  • Inspiring Individual

The team are also introducing a new category to celebrate individual and group fundraiser of the year.

Last year’s winners included South Belfast Beaver Colony and East Belfast Friendly

Pamela Frazer, Dementia Friendly Communities Support Manager, said:

“I’m keen to see a variety of entrants 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.
