National dementia charity changes its name

  • Comment

The charity for dementia, which provides Admiral Nurse services, has changed its name to Dementia UK.

Barbara Stephens, chief executive of Dementia UK, said: “We have changed our name to Dementia UK to reflect our strengthened presence across the UK. Our new name also provides us with a distinctive identity and an easier to use name for all our stakeholders, partners and supporters.”

Ann Windiate, chair of trustees of Dementia UK added: “The change of name reflects our aspiration to increase our reach to the people we support and train and is in keeping with the increasingly high regard in which the charity’s work is held in the field of dementia care.

“It has also given us an opportunity to refresh our materials and images and these changes have been implemented at minimal cost.”

John Suchet, whose wife has dementia and receives support from Admiral Nurses, has also become honorary president of the charity.
