With some spare time on our hands, we used the lockdown to revive our Instagram account and support #childhooddementia.

In the last few weeks, some of our team here at Sydney Community Services took part in #faceit – the day when we shine a light on #childhooddementia.

The task was simple: paint your face and show your commitment to the ongoing campaign to support those children and families who are coping with #childhooddementia.

Each year in Australia, around 129 babies are born with the condition that will lead to childhood dementia. This equates to more than two new cases every week. Currently, an estimated 2,273 Australians live with childhood dementia, and more than 90 of them will die prematurely every year. You can find out more here: https://www.childhooddementia.org/
