What is the DAA?
The Dementia Action Alliance is a movement with one simple aim: to bring about a society-wide response to dementia. It encourages and supports communities and organisations across England to take practical actions to enable people to live well with dementia and reduce the risk of costly crisis intervention. It is a first step to becoming a dementia-friendly community.
About Brent DAA
The Brent Dementia Action Alliance is made up of organisations working across the borough to make the lives of people living with dementia and their carers better. We will work to achieve our aims through positive action, community awareness and education.
How to Join
Membership of the Alliance is open to any group, organisation or business in Brent. All you need to do is identify three actions you and your staff can do to help improve the lives of people with dementia in your local area. Think people, place, process:
- Raise awareness of dementia: we will host a Dementia Friends session for our staff
- We will use the dementia-friendly environment checklist to make sure our space is welcoming for people living with dementia
- We will nominate a member of staff to be the lead on dementia, reviewing how we support people living with dementia, including those with a diagnosis and carers
- We will support Brent Dementia Action Alliance: we will tell others about the Alliance and encourage them to join, using our networks and resources to support Brent to become more dementia-friendly
