On Tuesday 17 March Dagenham and Rainham MP Jon Cruddas pledged to make this election memorable by taking action to support the 850,000 people living with dementia across the UK.

Jon Cruddas joined over 200 other MPs and representatives from Alzheimer’s Society in Westminster to meet people with dementia and commit to support those affected by the condition. On the day, Jon supported Alzheimer’s Society’s general election campaign that is calling for more people to get the dementia diagnosis they need and for everyone to be properly supported afterwards.
