European Foundations´Initiative on Dementia


EFID is a joint-programme led by foundations. Its mission is to improve the lives of people with dementia by enabling a dementia-friendly and inclusive environment in communities across Europe. EFID supports local organisations active on dementia-friendly initiatives through award and grant making, capacity development and networking.

ODS was commissioned by EFID to build a quality framework at a ‘meta’ level (drawing from the theories of change of the projects, but applicable to different contexts) with the EFID awardees. The aim of the framework is to provide to the different projects working on dementia, a benchmark according to which they will be able to check if their work meets the relevant criteria/methodology/process/indicators.
