Local Dementia Action Alliance

Important update:

The Local Dementia Action Alliance (LDAA) website is hosted by Alzheimer’s Society. As part of a wider review of Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friendly Communities recognition scheme earlier in 2023, we took the decision to end our support for the recognition scheme and the LDAA website. As a result, the Local Dementia Action Alliance website will be closing on the 5 January 2024.

We recognise the fantastic work and huge commitment from Local Dementia Action Alliances and the many member organisations who have been working hard to make their local communities more dementia friendly.

If you would like any more information or guidance about the closing of the Local Dementia Action Alliance website, please email dementiaactionalliance@alzheimers.org.uk

National Dementia Action Alliance: 

The National Dementia Action Alliance (NDAA) is now formally disestablished. 

As you may know, the decision was made to pare back NDAA activity in March/April 2020, in light of the impact that the pandemic was having on both the NDAA and members.

Whilst the financial pressures on the NDAA have been alleviated slightly the overall view is that in the current situation it’s neither ideal nor sustainable, and future funding potential has now also been impacted by the continued and longer term effect on both the NDAA and its members by the pandemic. 

Although this signals the end of the NDAA, there is much to be celebrated in what the alliance, and members, have achieved since it was founded in 2010! You can read about the NDAA's decade of achievements here


Alzheimer’s Society will collect your information via the registration form and will share this with the lead contact from the LDAA that you would like to join. Each LDAA acts independently and is responsible for how it uses information about its members. Alzheimer’s Society acts as an administrator for the content on this website; however, each LDAA is managed by external volunteers.

To find out more about how we handle your information, please read our privacy policy. After the website has closed, we will continue to handle your data in line with GDPR, but if you have any questions about this, please email dementiaactionalliance@alzheimers.org.uk
