National Dementia Action Plan – Public consultation

Closed 31 Jan 2023

Opened 18 Nov 2022


We are seeking feedback to inform a National Dementia Action Plan.

The National Dementia Action Plan is a joint initiative between the Australian Government and state and territory governments. It is a 10 year plan to put people living with dementia, their families, and carers at the centre of all action on dementia.

The National Dementia Action Plan will provide a vision where Australians understand dementia – people living with dementia and their carers have the best quality of life possible and no one walks the dementia journey alone.

It will mean better coordinated approaches to dementia risk reduction, early diagnosis and improvements in services for people living with dementia and their carers.

Why your views matter

We want to ensure that the voices of people with lived experience of dementia and those involved in their care are reflected in Australia’s priorities for action on dementia, including: 

  • people living with dementia 
  • their carers, families and friends 
  • people who work in primary care, health, acute or aged care 
  • researchers and academics. 

What happens next

Your feedback will shape the final National Dementia Action Plan, which will be finalised in 2023.
