The Angela Project publishes its key findings in “Good Practice in Young Onset Dementia”

Friday 26 June 2020

The Angela Project was a three-year research study carried out by the universities of Bradford, Northampton, Surrey and University College London (UCL). It is the largest study of young onset dementia ever carried out in the UK, and was designed to look at how post-diagnostic support for people living with young onset dementia and the accuracy of diagnosis can be improved. Funding came from the Alzheimer’s Society, with Dementia UK and YoungDementia UK also partnering in the project.  During the study, views were gathered from professionals and over 230 people living with, or caring for, someone with young onset dementia. 500 sets of case notes were audited and the research team talked to commissioners and service providers to understand more about what helped and hindered them in providing young onset dementia services. The survey also looked at good practice and needs met by good services, as well as examining the barriers and facilitators to good practice in post-diagnostic support for younger people. The findings of the study have been published in “Good Practice in Young Onset Dementia”. You can view the publication online or request hard copies, here:
