    Bookings now open!

    Over the last 15 years the UK Dementia Congress, organised by the Journal of Dementia Care, has built a reputation as the single event those working in dementia care do not want to miss – and we don’t want this year to be any different.

    Recent times have highlighted the passion, commitment and tenacity in the dementia care community. We are going to take as much of this as possible online, with a diverse selection of plenary and themed sessions, and opportunities for conversation and connections. We will come together in November, wherever we all are, to network and share ideas and experiences in a positive and supportive environment and to celebrate the contribution that you all make and will continue to make to the lives of people with dementia and carers.


    The Journal of Dementia Care, the organisers of the Congress, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society and the University of Worcester, want to encourage and welcome people with dementia and carers to this major event.  This year, we are offering free places to the virtual Congress to people living with dementia and carers, please see the booking page for more information. Along with the Alzheimer’s Society and representatives from DEEP and tide groups, we will ensure that support is available throughout the Congress to assist those who need it.

    “The Congress ended up being so much more than I had anticipated. I expected a sea of lectures from fancy specialists who didn’t actually understand the impact their research has on people day to day. What I actually got was thought provoking sessions, involving people living with Dementia and their family; an open floor to ask questions and no one feeling that their thoughts and feelings were inappropriate or unwanted. I left this congress feeling so empowered to go back to work and try to make a difference.” – Carla, student from University of Bradford
