Purpose of the group
- To provide a forum for MSPs, stakeholders and other interested parties to engage directly in dialogue to inform policy developments which impact on the health and well-being of people with dementia, their families and carers.
- To share the knowledge, experience and expertise of members of the group by sharing evidence from a range of personal, professional and academic perspectives. For example, in relation to priorities within the Scottish Government’s National Dementia Strategy. As appropriate, the group will produce briefings to enable MSPs to highlight new and emerging issues.
