Many thanks for showing interest in investing in Dementia Publishing Ltd, the newly formed, not-for-profit Community Benefit Society which has just bought the UK’s most extensive source of dementia-focussed information for professionals working with people living with dementia. Successfully launched by Hawker Publications almost thirty years ago, the Journal of Dementia Care (JDC) is now the leading publication for professionals. As the new owners (and original founders of JDC) we are committed to providing you with all that is so loved and valued at JDC, plus a lot more: the journal itself of course, now in an electronic format (still ably edited by Mark Ivory), a much more extensive website,, dementia-focused newsletters and social media and events including the UK’s largest annual event in our dementia care world, UK Dementia Congress, and the UK’s largest archive of dementia care articles.

JDC’s ultimate purpose has always been to improve the care of people living with dementia and we have, over many years, built up a community of practitioners, researchers, family carers and people with dementia themselves – everyone who cares passionately about dementia care and the vital importance of supporting all who work in the field. This support is needed now more than ever, in the current climate of intense pressure on services and staff. In  that spirit we believe a not-for-profit Community Benefit Society, whose purpose is to support a ‘community of interest’, funded by social investment makes it the ideal model for the JDC family.

We hope that our friends old and new will join us in supporting this venture, so that our work  with the dementia community can continue and we can resume, as we hope, the important meeting of minds, refreshment and renewal which is so important and so needed. Whether you are individual or an organisation please find the appropriate forms for investment below and we very much look forward to working with you as a much valued member of Dementia Publishing Community Benefit Society.
