East Riding Dementia Action Alliance
We have already received some excellent support from organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectiors
Our aim is to work towards a dementia friendly East Riding community where people with dementia are empowered to have high aspirations and to feel confident knowing that they can contribute and participate in activities that are meaningful to them.
By bringing individuals and organisations together to reduce stigma and raise understanding of dementia we will enable people living with dementia to continue doing the things that they enjoy within their own community for longer.
To achieve our aim we need to:
- Bring together the whole community in making a difference to those living with dementia.
- Encourage organisations to see dementia as their business and empower them to take action when they have other concerns and priorities.
- Engage in awareness raising activities and education.
- Ensure we have a strong voice of people living with dementia.
How the Alliance Works
Membership of the Dementia Action Alliance is open to any organisation seeking to make a difference to the quality of life for local people living with dementia.
Member organisations will:
- Commit to gaining at least a basic awareness of dementia, such as undertaking a Dementia Friend’s information session.
- Complete and commit to an Action Plan describing their organisation's role in helping improve the quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers.
- Commit to review actions at least annually and actively embrace a continuous improvement ethos to working towards becoming dementia friendly as our knowledge and understanding of dementia changes over time.
- In return, the East Riding Dementia Action Alliance will:
- Publicly recognise the member organisation’s commitment by including their details on the national Dementia Action Alliance website.
- Keep members updated on dementia awareness resources, information and opportunities, and networking events.
- Provide a nationally recognised Dementia Friendly Community logo that can be displayed by all organisations demonstrating commitment to their action plans.
