Details/description:

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.
