The Community Impact award was won by Lloyds Banking Group with Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Scotland.

Alzheimer’s and Dementia are massive issues that facing the UK. With over 800,000 people living with this debilitating illness it’s a challenge for families, the healthcare profession, employers and businesses. it’s affecting so many people even the Prime Minister is wading in.

In March 2012 David Cameron issued a national challenge on dementia – one of the key aspects of the challenge is creating dementia-friendly communities. Since then communities, individuals and organisations have all risen to the challenge and made Britain a better place for people with dementia.

From local shops to large cities, buses to banks; we have heard so many inspirational stories of people and organisations making changes that help people living with dementia and carers in their communities.

Lloyds banking group have been at the forefront of giving support and are deserving winners of the Community Impact awards. This is not an easy subject for big business to tackle and Lloyds have been brilliant engaging their staff and highlighting the everyday issues.

So we just wanted to add a REALLY big congrats to all the team at Lloyds.

And of course we are doing our bit helping promote products that help people with dementia live well.
