This week I am going to draw your attention to a new group that has been created called Race Against Dementia. Race Against Dementia is an alliance of groups currently providing information and support to people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities in the UK. Black and minority ethnic (BME) groups and the views that they have of dementia and dementia care receive very little attention in this country so any group prepared to bring the issues of minority communities to the fore is most welcome.
To find out more about this alliance visit their website which is very new at
On the website is a link to their good practice guidance. As their campaign develops I am sure more resources will be added.
On the theme of healthcare for BME groups you may find the following interesting video called “Dementia Does Not Discriminate”
There is also a useful Kings Fund Reading list if you want to know more.
