Title: Guide for JournalistsYoungDementia UK

Source/Link: https://www.youngdementiauk.org/guide-journalists

Description: This is a guide developed by YoungDementia UK and is designed to give information about younger onset dementia, to help media use appropriate language

Target Audience: Journalists, media, content writers, researchers and HCP writing information for people living with younger onset dementia.

Appropriate Audience: Anyone that is writing for or about dementia. This will also include those speaking about dementia to ensure the appropriate terms are being used.

Notes: In this guide, they refer to “working-age” dementia. This term is not commonly used in NZ, and can be very ambiguous as many people still enjoy meaningful working lives past the age of 65, so we recommend the use of the term “younger onset”. They also note the correct spelling and format of YoungDementia UK. It is important to check with organisations to ensure you are using and spelling their name correctly.

Contact Person: web@youngdementiauk.org or https://www.youngdementiauk.org/contact-us-0 is the contact form.
