How to Join the Northamptonshire DAA

Any organisation that operates in Northamptonshire and wants to radically change the lives of people living with dementia can become a member of the DAA and get involved locally. To join the DAA please complete an action plan. The commitment we then ask from members is to attend quarterly meetings, report quarterly on their actions and get involved in the local work of the alliance. We also ask members for inkind contributions including room hire, administrative support and refreshments.
