This website showcases the most important related outputs from JRF’s Dementia without Walls programme, and amplifies the voices of people with dementia themselves through their blogs, films, audio diaries and quotes.

The programme ran from June 2012 to the end of 2015. JRF wanted to help ensure that people living with dementia are more understood, more heard, more included, more connected and more supported – with and by each other, their local communities and society as a whole.

Over the course of the programme, JRF forged many creative partnerships, commissioned numerous projects, published reports and papers, produced films, and worked hard to engage meaningfully with people with dementia.

Although the formal programme has come to an end, the work continues through these partnerships and through DEEP, the UK Network of Dementia Voices.
