Every Small Step 2021

Walk with us and help us support family dementia carers.

Every small step counts.

Registration has now opened for our annual event, Every Small Step 2021!

Dementia Carers Count is dedicated to supporting family and friends looking after someone with dementia.

We’re inviting you to sign up and set your own 5-day step challenge. Help us reach a cumulative step count of 700,000 each day: one for every family carer in the UK. 

You can form your own walking group, or if you prefer to walk alone we can keep you company with our new, exclusive podcast episodes. 

There are even medals this year for those who wish to fundraise or donate £50 or more. The vital funds you raise ensure Dementia Carers Count can continue to offer life-changing support to family members and friends caring for someone with dementia in the UK.

The work of a family carer never ends. Let’s make dementia carers count together.
