Abstract

The UK Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia for 2020 drew attention to the implications of living with dementia for black, Asian and minority ethnic communities in London. The Mental Health Foundation and CNWL Trust held an expert seminar in 2015 involving voluntary sector organisations working with raising dementia awareness to explore common experience and share good practice. ‘Wake Up London’ a paper produced based on the seminar looks at the challenges presented to some of the largest older minority-ethnic communities in the UK and some of the recent initiatives across the capital that
are tackling the issues. The seminar group’s discussions and follow-up work produced Race Against Dementia a national Call for Action to create a co-ordinated approach to raising awareness about dementia in Black, Asian and minority communities supported by a comprehensive account of good practice success stories with a variety of community groups.
