A good read for who? local authorities, employers transport providers and housing organisations.

In their words:
“Dementia is a disability, download linkaccording to domestic law and international convention. Thousands of people who responded to the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) inquiry agreed that they see dementia
as a disability. However, they told the APPG that society is lagging behind in this understanding and failing to uphold the legal rights
of people with dementia.”

“This report focused on the importance of promoting disability rights for people with dementia in six areas: employment, social protection, social care, transport, housing and community life. However, these rights should not be limited to these areas – it is vital they are embedded in all areas of society.”
