What We Do
Project We Forgot (PWF) provides an online space of identification for young caregivers caring for a loved one with dementia through personal stories. We drive strong outreach across social channels through branded content to target the young.
We are focused on dementia outreach, awareness and supporting young caregivers. We advocate and build a community of support for young caregivers who may be caring for a parent or a grandparent with dementia.
The 4 Pillars of Project We Forgot (PWF)
Global Collaborations & Partnerships
Working with a global network to gather insights to build better support, we cover surveys, research work and take on consulting projects focused on product or programme development targeted for the younger community.
Increase availability of formal and non-formal support for young caregivers.
Increase awareness and education amongst young people on the impact of dementia on both caregivers and persons with dementia
Increase awareness of needs of caregivers at formal institutions (schools and workplaces).
We are a team of enthusiastic and innovative individuals, who have a passion for dementia outreach, awareness and supporting younger caregivers. We build our team with individuals who have been or are caregivers and would like to give back. Our skills span consultancy, editorial, creative, dementia care, design, digital development, organisational development and events. Local chapter representatives lead the outreach and support activities by bringing global practices to their local community.

A scientist-in-training, YJ has had the opportunity to work on projects pertaining to Alzheimer’s. She was further acquainted with the ravages of Alzheimer’s by witnessing her good friend struggle as a caregiver and grapple with the eventual loss of a parent to the disease.
