Pioneering new Challenge Dementia prize launched

Elderly woman and man linking arms. Is your idea worth £100,000?

Monday 5 February 2018

Challenge Dementia is the first national search for next generation products, technologies and services that could transform the way people live with dementia helping them to live enjoyable and fulfilling lives for as long as possible.

Challenge Dementia is open to individuals, teams and companies from across the UK with ideas for ambitious and innovative products, technologies and services that will enable people living with dementia to remain connected to the people and places around them and to maintain their identity.

In May, a panel of judges will invite up to 10 finalists to test and develop their ideas in Essex over a six month period. Each will receive £5,000 and access to a unique ecosystem of dementia experts from across the community, voluntary, public and private sector as well as people living with Dementia. £100,000 will be awarded to the winner who successfully meets the entry and judging criteria.

We are holding an event on 21 February in London (and online via webinar) where potential applicants can hear from our partners, find out more about the challenge and network with other people interested in the prize to seek connections. Sign up today to take part.
