David Cameron has revealed to BBC Radio Oxford that the entire cabinet has committed to becoming Dementia Friends.

It is an initiative launched to improve knowledge of dementia by spreading awareness of what living with the condition is like, and the difference people can make to those with the illness living in communities.
