Partners and supporters
This is an ambitious and wide ranging campaign. It involves a lot of different organisations co-operating to help people with dementia and their loved ones.

Main partners

Understand Together is supported by lots of partner organisations from health, education, transport, financial services and other sectors.  We also connect with local services for people with dementia. Together we want to highlight the people behind the statistics and show that through understanding we can fight the stigma and fear that surrounds dementia. 

This campaign shows that by standing together, we can help build a movement to forge inclusive communities for people with dementia, carers, and families and friends. Individuals, businesses and lots of other groups and associations can each play a part in helping to build caring and compassionate communities for people affected by dementia.

Understand Together has already attracted the support of over 30 organisations across Ireland from sectors including retail, transport, banking, health and the voluntary and community sector. These organisations are leading the way in creating communities that actively embrace and include those living with dementia and their loved ones.
