Online support provided by the RAF Association

Many members of the RAF community are navigating their journey with dementia every day.

Some members have caring responsibilities for someone living with  dementia,  and others are in the unique position of caring for someone with dementia at a distance. As part of our mission to support the whole RAF community, we’re determined to do all we can to ease the situation.

The Navigating Dementia website is designed to offer information on dementia, identify where additional or specialist support can be accessed and bring people together via an online forum.
