To mark the fourth year of the National Dementia Declaration the Dementia Action Alliance is surveying people affected by dementia and professionals supporting them to find out whether current activity is leading to real changes on the ground.
The survey will provide a snapshot of progress to date and can be completed in 10-30 minutes depending on how long you spend on each question. The online survey has a filter with different questions for people affected by dementia and professionals.
Survey of people affected by dementia
If you are a person affected by dementia (either as a carer acting as a proxy, as someone with a diagnosis or is worried about their memory) you will be asked a series of statements about how well you are living with the condition. Simply tell us whether the statements apply to you.
Survey of professionals and carers
If you have a professional interest in the National Dementia Strategy (NDS), you will be asked to rate progress against the outcomes of the NDS launched in 2009. These map across to the statements in the National Dementia Declaration. The successor to the strategy, the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia, is still in operation so we have gone back to the original objectives to chart progress over the last five years. Family carers and people living with dementia can also complete the survey if you would like to share your views on the Strategy.
We are seeking multiple responses from the same organisation, so please complete it even if a colleague has done so already.

How will it be used?
The results will be broken down by postcode area to inform the work programmes of the national and local Dementia Action Alliances and any successor to the Prime Minister’s Challenges on Dementia.
Thank you in anticipation of completing and disseminating the survey.
We would also like to thank everyone who has helped to design and develop it. This includes the Association for Dementia Studies at the University of Worcester for creating the survey and a number of DAA members for providing feedback.
