Big thank you to all our runners who took part in the Virgin London Marathon. Over 500 people ran for us raising more than half a million pounds that will help us provide services to support people with dementia and their families. Thank you also to all our fantastic volunteers and everyone that came along to cheer our runners.

For all those that took part please feel free to share your story about how you got on. If you were one of our runners this year and would like to run again next year or if you have been inspired to take part you can apply for a 2016 place now http://bit.ly/1EvWxyh

Carers' input makes a big difference to the experience of people with dementia in hospital. One London trust is now giving carers greater access. Afternoon tea is always special, but in the week when John's Campaign won cross-party support for carers to be allowed on wards at all times, a modest party organised by the dementia nursing team of St Mary's Hospital in London proved the perfect way to mark a small yet significant advance in the care of people with dementia.

Thanks to the 5,000 of you who emailed your MPs asking them to join us in parliament yesterday. Over 200 of your parliamentary representatives came and spoke to us about our work.

Not only that, but the three main party leaders, and the Secretary of State for Health also took time out of their busy schedules to show their support for Alzheimer’s Society and the dementia promise, which outlines the 12 actions the next government should take to improve the lives of people with dementia.

Last week we launched our manifesto for the general election – the dementia promise. It includes 12 calls to the next government that if implemented will transform the lives of people affected by dementia. We want all political parties to act on our calls.

It’s polling day today – let’s hope that the next government continues to support people affected by dementia and make it a priority over the next few years. 

Our manifesto, makes recommendation on how the government can improve the lives of people living with dementia:  alzheimers.org.uk/generalelection2015

As the Care Act comes into force last week we are urging all political parties to commit sufficient funding to turn its provisions into a reality. The social care system is in crisis and people with dementia are amongst the hardest hit as carers and families shoulder two-thirds of the cost of caring for people with the condition. Without sustainable funding the most significant piece of social care legislation for decades is at risk of becoming a wasted opportunity. Read more: http://bit.ly/1bPzGCY

Last week, Shelagh joined us at our parliamentary event to talk to MPs about her campaign for better post-diagnosis support, and to hand in her petition to Downing Street. Over 200 MPs and the three main part leaders came by to speak to her about the Right to Know campaign at our parliamentary event.

We’ve closed her petition on Change.org, but this is not the end of the campaign. Post-election, we’ll be continuing to push for better post-diagnosis support for people with dementia. If you haven’t already signed up, you can still join our Right to Know campaign http://bit.ly/1EMl2G5

Are you a carer for person with dementia and have questions about communicating to that person? Tomorrow on Facebook, one of our Helpline Advisers will be on hand to answer any of your queries on this subject. Perhaps you need advice about what to say when they ask a difficult question or how to communicate when that person also has a degree of hearing loss. Join us tomorrow between 12-1pm: facebook.com/alzheimerssocietyuk

We have a new section on our site to help younger people cope with and understand dementia. Whether they know someone with dementia or not, increasing young people's understanding will build their confidence in communicating with people living with dementia, and help to reduce stigma.

The information on these pages is for young people, parents, teachers and youth leaders: alzheimers.org.uk/youngpeople
