Our Alliance

The Dementia Alliance for Culture and Ethnicity (DACE) is an alliance of groups currently providing information and support to people from black, Asian and minority ethnic communities in the UK.

Although currently mainly London based we want to invite the support of any and all of those who feel the time has come for the UK to ‘step up its game’ in meeting the challenge of dementia in black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.  

Organisations and groups in the UK have known about the issues facing the diverse communities living with dementia for some time and there is a growing body of research emphasising the challenges.

It is time to take a different approach. We need an investment and funding strategy that builds up further the competencies of grass roots organisations and develops their ability to work effectively with mainstream organisations to support more dementia friendly communities. This would include integrating not merely with health and social care services but also transport, emergency services and schools and faith-based organisations. 

Our Aims

We want to see increased investment in capacity building in grass roots organisations to provide competent support and information to those in black, Asian and minority ethnic communities living with dementia and their relatives and carers. 

The outcomes that would result from this capacity building would be: 

  • Improvements in practice 
  • Improvements in knowledge and awareness of dementia 
  • Improvements in inclusive policy making 
  • Improvements in research
