"Teach about dementia in your primary school and help us create a dementia-friendly generation.
A third of young people know someone living with dementia. With over two million people developing dementia in the next ten years, most people will know someone affected by the condition in their lifetime.
We want every young person to understand what it's like to live with dementia. Help us make a dementia-friendly generation by teaching your students about dementia."
