Scottish Government publishes two-year delivery plan (2024 to 2026)


The Scottish Government has published an initial delivery plan for 2024-2026, setting out how it will work with local authorities to implement the commitments contained within Scotland’s national dementia strategy. There are seven key deliverables, including:

• Creating a public-facing campaign that challenges the stigma associated with dementia, co-produced with the National Dementia Lived Experience Panel

• Commissioning an independent evaluation of the Aberdeen Brain Health Service, supported by a cross-governmental, cross-sectoral oversight group

• Working with Public Heath Scotland, and local and academic partners, to add to the data collected and published on diagnosis and Post-Diagnostic Support

• Establishing a short-life working group to further develop current understanding of the workforces supporting people living with dementia to identify any gaps

• Commissioning an independent evaluation of Scotland’s Post-Diagnostic Support policy and delivery, including the perspective of people living with dementia and care partners/unpaid carers and those living in care homes

• Establishing a Resilient Communities Programme Board tasked with identifying priorities and allocating dedicated Scottish Government funding to grassroots and community organisations

• Establishing a cross-governmental, cross-sectoral steering group to help shape the Scottish Government’s role in contributing to the research and understanding around risk, identification, diagnosis, and treatment.
