Who we are

Dementia Carers Count is a national charity which provides support to people caring for someone living with dementia. 

​​Alongside carers, we campaign for changes and support needed to stop dementia carers feeling overwhelmed, invisible and alone. ​

We’re a dedicated team of health and social care professionals, advocates and campaigners, with a breadth of experience in delivering services for dementia carers and charity management. We’re supported by wonderful volunteers on our board of trustees, who provide strategic guidance on our direction and activity, and our Carers Advisory Panel, who work with us to ensure we focus on issues which really matter to carers.

Our Values

Changemakers for dementia carers

We amplify the voice of dementia carers, campaign for social care change and support and advocate during challenging times. We do this with carers and for carers.

Always there for carers

We listen and support. We empower dementia carers to take control of their journey.

Reflective and responsive

We are a learning organisation, with carers at our heart. Dementia carers’ experiences inform everything that we do. We value evidence, data and research.

Easy to work with

We believe in collaboration with our partners, stakeholders and carers. This drives the way we work.

Carers Advisory Panel

The members of our Carers Advisory Panel (CAP) advise and guide us on our strategy and operational development. As current or former carers, they offer us real-life experience and perspective so that we can fine tune our services to ensure we offer the best possible services to carers of people with dementia.

We are honoured that our carers offer us their expertise, knowledge and wisdom.

Diversity, Inclusion And Belonging At Dementia Carers Count 

At Dementia Carers Count we work to empower and support family carers of people with dementia and ensure their voices are heard.  This means we need to work hard to connect with carers from different communities and in different circumstances. And by listening to what different carers tell us, we can make sure our services meet their needs.  We are committed to building an organisation where everyone feels they belong.  So when we say all carers count, we truly mean all.
