Life Story Network meeting the PM’s Challenge on Dementia

The Life Story Network believes that the key to meeting the PM’s Challenge on Dementia  is to engage all parts of our communities by focusing on the life experiences we can share rather than on our differences.

If we focus on the person rather than the problem – whatever that problem is – then we are more likely to connect with and value the humanity we all share.

The Life Story Network is leading a number of initiatives to meet the key commitments set out in the Prime Minister’s dementia challenge. Find out more at
