Currently 700,000 people in the UK have dementia and this figure is expected to double over the next few decades. The Level 2 Award in Awareness of Dementia in Dementia Care will help to improve health and care services supporting individuals diagnosed with dementia.

The Awareness of Dementia Level 2 Award qualification is aimed at occupational areas across all service user groups and ages, working in statutory (including NHS), private and voluntary agencies.
