How else can I help?
You can help raise awareness of the Dementia Strikes Children Too campaign in lots of other ways to help the campaign reach as many people as possible. For example, share content with your colleagues by email, or bring childhood dementia into the conversation over dinner with friends.
The campaign website contains lots of information about the campaign’s aims, so this is the best element to share with friends and family.
You can email DementiaStrikesChildrenToo@portland-communication.com if you want to chat to the team about getting involved in a different way.
Where can I get support for my family or someone I know with childhood dementia?
If you want help, support, guidance or just a friendly face to talk to, the community of patient groups are best placed to do this.
Check out the Patient Support page for information on these groups, the level of support they offer, and how to get in touch with them. Many of these organisations have networks across the UK, and aim to support families from diagnosis right the way through their journey to enable families to have the best quality of life.
How can I fundraise or donate to the charities involved?
The Dementia Strikes Children Too campaign isn’t collecting donations or fundraising as part of the our activity.
However, you can visit each of the patient organisation websites for information on how you can fundraise and support their activity in other ways. You can find their details on our Patient Support page.
Where can I find out more about childhood dementia?
You can find out more about the diseases which make up childhood dementia on the Our Campaign Story page, or you can visit the BDFA, NPUK or MPS Society websites, to explore their own educational materials and content.
Are the stories on here about real families?
Yes. All our stories are from real interviews with families whose children have been diagnosed with a neurological disease which causes childhood dementia.
