Diverse Cymru

Dementia Care for People from BME Communities – Research Project

Diverse Cymru is leading on a project whichwill undertake research into dementia care for people from BME communities in Wales. They will contact the 7 Local Health Boards to establish current users of services, identifying gaps in support for BME communities.

Research will include third sector provision from organisations currently providing services to older people with dementia including Age Concern; Dementia UK; Alzheimer’s Society  as well as other BME-led third sector service providers working in the area and good practice in Wales and from other parts of the UK. Research will consider services and support available to people with dementia and their carers.

If you would like to get involved in this research, (especially BME people and people who work with diverse communities) please contact Suzanne Duval – BME Mental Health Manager [email protected]
