Dementia Advocacy

The Beth Johnson Foundation is a pioneer of advocacy programmes, having initiated citizen advocacy for the first time in 1989, and dementia advocacy in 1998. Our dementia advocacy programme has developed over the years to support people at a most vulnerable time in their lives when they have been diagnosed with dementia.

To find an advocate contact:

Betty Machin (Manager), at: betty.machin@bjf.org.uk, or Jane Snape (Project Co-ordinator Stoke on Trent), at: jane.snape@bjf.org.uk.
