Coronavirus (COVID-19) - dementia and COVID-19: action plan

This national action plan plan sets out how we will build on our national response to the coronavirus pandemic since March 2020 and how we will continue and expand that response in 2021 to continue to support recovery for people with dementia and their carers.

Events Participation Summary

  • We held a total of 14 individual virtual engagement events.
  • We spoke with over 100 attendees (organisations or individuals) in all.
  • We also engaged with attendees at two key dementia meetings via breakout groups at National Dementia Strategy Implementation and Governance Group & National Dementia in Care Homes Group (further 50 participants with some crossover with the other events).
  • An online questionnaire was widely circulated which received 99 responses.
  • In addition some event participating organisations provided collated responses and individuals emailed their views to the Dementia Policy Mailbox, so an additional 20 people engaged this way.
