The work of the AP/DSC Dementia Programme


The joint Atlantic Philanthropies and NI Executive Delivering Social Change initiative on dementia (the AP/DSC Dementia Programme) aimed to transform the care and well-being of people living with dementia.

Atlantic entered into the joint programme with government in order to encourage the development and embedding of good practices in publicly supported dementia expenditures, policies and services.

It was one of three co-funded programmes under a £62million partnership initiative between philanthropy and government in Northern Ireland.  This report gives an overview of the work of the programme, its impact and lessons learned.
