Alzheimer's Society: Championing Diversity Award

Category: Diversity & Inclusion

The word 'Awards ' on red VERCIDA background

Our Championing Diversity award recognises the action taken to increase our connection with diverse communities.

The judging panel will be looking for Dementia Friends champions, dementia friendly communities and business that have actively included diverse communities. In particular, we’ll be looking at how direct connections with the community have been sought and insights gained have been used to adapt our approach for the benefit of that community.

Award criteria

While we are always pleased to hear from anyone who has increased the inclusion of diverse communities. Nominations must follow the below criteria:

  • Collaboration has taken place with the community
  • The approach used has been adapted for the community
  • An increase in awareness has been seen either via Dementia Friends sessions or targeted awareness raising campaigns
  • An increase in service use has been seen with a community that previously had not been included

All nominations must evidence a positive impact on people affected by dementia and/or be able to demonstrate the involvement of people affected by dementia.

Activity included in your nomination must have taken place from August 2017 onwards.

Nominations are still open for Nothern Island. Please click here to nominate.
