The Alzheimer's Society launch lesbian and gay network

The Alzheimer's Society Lesbian and Gay Network was officially launched at a special reception in central London on Thursday 22 April 2004.

Dementia does not discriminate and it is not just a heterosexual condition. It is estimated that there are between 35,000 – 50,000 lesbian and gay carers of people with dementia in the UK.

The expansion of the network gives practical direction to the Society’s commitment to providing a high quality and inclusive service for all. Over the next two years the project will receive £90,000 from Comic Relief to develop and strengthen its work. The funding has also enabled the Society to appoint a development officer to promote the services provided by the Network as well as establish the specific needs of lesbian and gay people with dementia and their carers.
