Improving dementia care and support for the Black African and Caribbean community across Greater Manchester

Call for Evidence 

Current NHS Ethnicity Data tells us that across England there are only 122 Black African and Caribbean people diagnosed with dementia with only 6 of these people living in Greater Manchester. The African Caribbean Care Group is working with Dementia United to identify the actual number of Black African and Caribbean people across Greater Manchester that have dementia. We aim to ensure the care pathway being developed by Dementia United addresses the cultural needs of Black African and Caribbean people and their carers, living with a diagnosis of dementia and also informs local dementia specialists, health care workers and policy makers.

The Dementia Call for Evidence Survey covers four areas of a person’s Dementia journey.  The aim of this survey is to understand the dementia support and information provision to Black African and Caribbean people in Greater Manchester. Questions can be answered by either carers or people living with dementia. You can find out more on the ACCG website

Join the conversation – Wednesday 10 February 2021 from 2pm to 3.30pm.

We want to hear about the care and support you’ve received, would like to receive, and what’s made a difference to you. By joining the conversation you can help us to improve local services to the African & Caribbean Community in Greater Manchester.  Find out how to join here
