MPs launch inquiry into dementia workforce

MPs and Peers have begun a six month investigation into the dementia care workforce. Members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia (APPG) will investigate whether social care staff caring for people with dementia are being equipped with the right skills to deliver high quality dementia care.

The APPG on Dementia is calling for evidence from care home organisations, care staff, regulators, people with dementia and carers. Read the terms of reference of the inquiry

Launched in June 2007, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia (APPG) is an informal parliamentary group made up of MPs and Peers with an interest in dementia. Its purpose is to raise awareness of the condition amongst parliamentarians and to influence legislation and policy making with the aim of improving the lives of people with dementia and their carers.

The APPG is being run in partnership with Alzheimer’s Society. The Society is providing administrative support and expert advice to the Group.
