Title/name of initiative: 

The Dementia Alliance for Culture and Ethnicity (DemACE)

Type of initiative: 

Website containing a wide range of documents and video links


United Kingdom


The Dementia Alliance for Culture and Ethnicity (DACE) is an alliance of groups currently providing information and support to people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities in the UK. DACE aims to promote improved understanding of dementia in Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities and improved services and support for all those living with dementia and their carers and families. Their "Call to Action" demands increased investment and resources for grassroots organisations such as faith and community groups, which are described as containing largely untapped potential. See

Which languages are covered? 

English and a range of other languages (i.e. through the links to a wide range of documents and video clips)

What is the target audience of the initiative:

It is stated on the website that the aim is to provide information and support to people with dementia and carers from BAME communities. A lot of information would probably also be valuable to healthcare professionals and service providers.
