To join this DAA
If you are interested in joining South Cambridgeshire DAA please contact
Hilary Shepherd (Dementia Action Alliance Coordinator)
There are no special requirements to join - you only need to be a business or organisation based in the geographical location of South Cambridgeshire and enthusiastic about improving the lives of people living with dementia. If you're not sure please get in touch, or book a Dementia Friends Information Session for you and your staff/volunteers to find out a little more about dementia.
If you are living with dementia, or you are caring for someone with dementia, we would like to hear from you about what it is like to live in your area when you are affected by dementia. Whenever we can, we want to work on priorities identified directly by people affected by dementia. If you would like to be involved in talking to businesses, raising awareness, attending DAA meetings, or in any other way, please get in touch.
