Dementia Action Alliance

Dementia Action Alliance logo

The Dementia Action Alliance are organisations across England committed to transforming the lives of people with dementia and those that care for them.

Signing up nationally or locally
To become a member, organisations sign up to the National Dementia Declaration and submit an Action Plan setting out how they are delivering the outcomes described in the Declaration.

Members are classed as either national or local depending on whether they have an ambition to deliver outcomes nationally or on a regional/local level.

Local Dementia Action Alliances
Once a sufficient level of membership has been established, you can join a Local Alliance in your area if you have not done so already and meetings will convene.  They initially focus on general awareness-raising, campaigns like Dementia Friends, and partnership working in their specific area.   They are recommended vehicles for developing dementia-friendly communities.

There is a Southwark Dementia Action Alliance here

Subject Definitions

For some people later in their life the cells in the brain that are related to mental ability become damaged, causing a gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember. When this happens it is referred to as dementia. Dementia is a non-specific illness syndrome (set of signs and symptoms) in which affected areas of cognition may be memory, attention, language, and problem solving.
