Huge thank you to Comic Relief

IANE have been awarded a plaque from Comic Relief in recognition to the advocacy we provide.

Our wonderful Chair Karen and Chief Executive Officer proudly holding CR Plaque.

IANE has become one of more than 2100 across the UK to recieve a brand new "Red Plaque" in recognition of our vital work, supported by Comic Relief funding.

This newly funded work will provide advocacy to people with dementia and their families and carers.

Round and red to echo Comic Relief's iconic Red Nose, the plaque features a quote from one of Comic Relief's supporters Davina McCall and is proudly on display in IANE's window, at the main office in North Shields.

Our CEO Keith Thomson and our Chair Karen Macgregor are really pleased that IANE have recieved this funding from Comic Relief, to provide this vital work to dementia sufferers, their family and carers.
