Barnet Dementia Action Alliance

Achievements

Launch date: 11th May 2017 Barnet Dementia Hub contact Patrick.Gray@alzheimers.org.uk for more info.

Barnet has an ethnically and culturally diverse population. There are 4000 people living with dementia in the borough, by 2021 this is set to increase by 24%. It is our ambition to reach out to all communities within the Borough to improve the lives of people living with dementia, and those of their families and carers.

We aim to achieve this by:

  • Ensuring that we have a strong voice of people living with dementia and their carers, guiding us throughout our journey.
  • Encouraging organisations to see dementia as highly relevant to their business practices and empowering them to take positive action to reduce the stigma and barriers that can confront people with dementia.
  • Spreading a better awareness of dementia within the community and dispelling the misconceptions that often exist.
  • Encouraging as many people as possible, through the Dementia Friends Initiative, to give consideration as to how they personally might make a contribution towards improving the day to day lives of people with dementia.
