Dementia Australia has been looking at how best to support and stay connected with our valuable supporters. We recently conducted a review of our membership program, alongside other programs and offerings from Dementia Australia. With many more dynamic ways to stay connected, we believe we can offer our supporters improved options and greater choice via these new initiatives.
As such, after careful consideration we have decided to close the membership program, effective 30 April 2021. Existing memberships will be extended, free, until that date.
As we move towards closing our membership program, we want to assure current members that nothing will change immediately. All members will continue to have access to our national library service and regular enewsletter. Premium and Life members will continue to receive the quarterly issue of Member Matters until 2021.
Although our membership program may be coming to an end, we want to remain connected with all our current members and supporters, including through:
- Our national library service
- Regular enewsletters;
- Our Dementia Friends and Dementia Advocates programs;
- Social media, including our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram channels; and
- Our National Dementia Helpline 1800 100 500.
We have written to all members advising them of this change, and we will contact all members again in the coming months with more detail on how to stay connected with Dementia Australia.
