Alzheimer's Support has been shortlisted for a national award for its work in Wiltshire.

The charity is a finalist in the Dementia Care category of the  Markel Third Sector Care Awards, which rewards compassion, creativity and innovation in the charity sector. 

CEO Babs Harris said: "We are thrilled to be shortlisted and to have our work recognised as exceptional on the national stage. 

"The nomination is for the whole organisation and recognises the work of everyone involved in Alzheimer's Support in what has been a difficult year. Whatever the outcome, we couldn't be prouder."

Other finalists are Music for Dementia which campaigns to bring music to everyone living with dementia, and Retain Wellbeing which runs dementia-friendly cafes.

Winners are usually announced in December at an event hosted by Esther Ranzten. This year, because of the pandemic, the award ceremony will be held on a date to be confirmed in 2021. 

Alzheimer's Support won the Engagement Award at the Third Sector Care Awards in 2017.
