Dementia 2020- April 28, 2020-RSM


The Implementation Plan published on 6th March 2016 outlines how the 50 commitments set out in the Prime Minister’s challenge on dementia 2020 will be met, ensuring that England becomes the world-leader in dementia care, research and awareness by 2020.

The plan provides more detail on how these commitments, across the four core themes of risk reduction, health and care, awareness and social action, and research will be met. Developed in partnership with a range of stakeholders, including people with dementia and carers across England, it explains how the commitments in the 2020 challenge will be delivered. It identifies the priority actions within each theme, and indicates which organisations are responsible for delivery.

For the last 4 years, Govconnect’s Dementia 2020 series of conferences (’16’17’18’19) have allowed government departments, arms-length bodies, the NHS and local authorities, research institutions, and the charity and voluntary sector to hear from senior leaders from many of the key partner organisations involved in the 2020 Challenge.

The Govconnect 2020 series to date has welcomed 1000+ delegates & 70+ speakers, providing the platform to discuss actions up to 2020 and hear more detailed delivery plans for them. Each year bursaries have been provided for carers and service users to attend, so as their views can be incorporated into the days discussions, in the hope they will contribute significantly to future policy and direction.

Govconnect would like to encourage previous delegates, speakers and partners to join us for Dementia 2020 – The Final Review – the last instalment in this hugely successful series of conferences, providing the opportunity for a conclusive review of the 2020 strategy, and an assessment of the forward steps that have been made in the journey to transform dementia care, support & research. The conference will welcome back some of the highest profile contributors from previous years to form the most senior speaker line-up ever assembled.
