Posted by Simon Lord (Admin) Feb 12, 2021 Posted in Inspiration

Calling all Innovation Hub users - we need your nominations!

The Dementia Hero Awards 2021, sponsored by Tunstall Healthcare, will showcase the stories of people doing outstanding things during the pandemic – our dementia heroes.

The awards will recognise the inspirational achievements of those individuals, groups and organisations who care for people with dementia, those finding innovative solutions in research, and the campaigners & media fighting for the rights of people with dementia.

There are 10 award categories, such as excellence in dementia care, influencing change, inclusive businesses and our fundraising heroes, but we're here to ask you for your nominations for one category in particular - innovation.

The Dementia Hero for Innovation award  recognises individuals or groups who have developed a new product, project or service for people affected by dementia.

The Innovation team at Alzheimer’s Society focuses on developing new solutions to the day-to-day challenges of people affected by dementia through our sprint projects and our Accelerator Programme. We find innovative ways to overcome barriers to living well and we seek out and invest in the best new ideas of innovators and entrepreneurs.

But we know the work being done by our team is just the tip of the iceberg and there are an army of innovation heroes working to develop new products, initiatives and interventions that can help make it easier to live with or care for someone living with dementia.

It couldn’t be easier to enter, nominate yourself or someone who has inspired you for a Dementia Hero Award. Visit, nominations close on Friday 5 March 2021.
