Dementia Action Alliance brings together organisations and individuals across England committed to improving health and social care outcomes for people living with dementia, and those who care for them.
WHO WE ARE
We are Dementia Action Alliance – the alliance of over 150 national organisations across England who connect, share best practice and take action on dementia. Everything we do is in partnership, and informed by people living with dementia, and those that care for them.
We were formed in 2010 with the launch of the National Dementia Declaration. This saw members commit to action that radically improve the lives of people living with dementia. Today, our members continue to make commitments, using their collective expertise to influence Government policy and societal attitudes towards dementia.
WHAT WE DO
Dementia Action Alliance captures and promotes best practice, enabling it to benefit many more people. We facilitate our members to take action on dementia through Action Plans. These are made public on our website.
We also enable our members to come together to share best practice and learn from each other through regular events – from conferences and expert-led roundtables to workshops and webinars.
We campaign on major issues within health and social care to create system-wide change, and ensure that dementia does not prevent people from living the lives they wish to.
