Trek through ever-changing landscapes, climb to the top of dunes, soak up the stunning Sahara sunrise & sleep under the stars with a team of YoungDementia UK supporters.
In a long weekend you'll be transported to another world and complete one of the most stunning challenges on the planet with vistas as far as the eye can see and the volcanic Anti-Atlas Mountains as the backdrop.
You'll be mesmerised by the remoteness and solitude that the Sahara brings, have the opportunity to witness the sun rising over the astonishing Chigaga dunes and delve into the culture of a nomad's camp.

Helping young people with early onset dementia adapt and live life
Younger people diagnosed with dementia are likely to still be working with finanical commitments such as a mortgage and responsibilities including dependant children and even dependant parents. They experience similar symptoms to older people but the impact on their active lives is significantly different.
YoungDementia UK provides support, information and connections to the tens of thousands of young people affected by this challenging condition every year.
