About

The Dementia Friendly Awards are an annual celebration, which recognises the work of individuals, organisations, projects and partnerships in creating safe, friendly and supportive communities for people with dementia across the UK.

The awards recognise everyone, from volunteers to carers to hairdressers and hospitals; schools and sports clubs to community groups and corporations. Nominations are chosen by people with dementia and their carers, and judged by a panel of industry experts. Eight groups of services users review and rank nominations, alongside the shortlists made by judges. The scores from both of these stages were then added together for each nomination and both stages carry the same weight.

The categories are:

  • Dementia Friendly Community of the Year – Rural community, sponsored by British Gas
  • Dementia Friendly Community of the Year – Town, sponsored by British Gas
  • Dementia Friendly Community of the Year – City, sponsored by British Gas
  • Dementia Innovation of the Year, sponsored by BT
