100/6000 Conferences

In September 2021, Deepness Dementia hosted the first ever 100/6000 Conference during Dementia Activism week, in Dundee, Scotland.  

The conference was a huge success and we are already making plans to grow the conference so that it is bigger and better for 2022.

This was the first conference in Scotland run by people living with dementia/cognitive impairment, for people living with dementia/cognitive impairment.

The first ever conference where all speakers were people with lived experience of dementia/cognitive impairment.  In which people who were not living with the experience of dementia could attend as observers.

People living with dementia / cognitive impairment and their unpaid supporters attended at no charge, funded by bursary places.

Those who could not make it to Dundee could also attend the conference online, ensuring that it was inclusive for all.

100/6000 Conference - 14th - 15th September 2021

In September 2021, the first conference run by people living with dementia, for people living with dementia took place in Dundee.  It was a life changing experience for all those who attended.  The 100/6000 Conference discussed and debated ideas for the future direction for people living with dementia.

From this two day hybrid conference, we collated and analysed all that was talked about, written down and analysed to create the '100/6000 Deepness Conference Position Paper'.  This position paper presented our views on the new National Care Service for Scotland, from the viewpoint of all those who were at the conference. 

The Position Paper has already been send to the Scottish Government and a meeting with a Scottish Minister has taken place discussing our position.


The Life Changes Trust part funded the conference as a peer-to-peer grant to support people living with dementia to access the conference.
