Mission Statement

Our vision is of a society where the civil and legal rights of people with dementia are fully respected and they are able to participate in the making of all decisions that affect them without discrimination or prejudice.

Our mission is to transform people’s understanding and awareness of dementia through our educational programmes and research, informed by the voice of the person with dementia and those around them.

Our values are of dignity and respect; autonomy and choice; participation and empowerment.

The DSiDC works alongside health and social care professionals; people with dementia and their care partners; community organisations; private and public care providers; and national policy makers to achieve its goals.
