Canterbury Dementia Action Alliance
The Canterbury DAA is a constituent member of the Kent Dementia Action Alliance and has such is part of the Kent initiative 'Working towards being a dementia friendly conmmunity'.
The Canterbury DAA was established in December 2014 with agreement on Terms of Reference including signing up to the National Dementia Declaration. The Alliance is made up of a wide range of organisations all of whom have committed to turning words into actions to help people to Live well with dementia.
This Action alliance is open to all to attend, and we encourage those who are local groups, residents and people living with dementia. As a group we are kept on track by the important input that we have from the East Kent Forget me nots which is a group of people with early onset dementia.
In addition to individual Alliance members we also have a number of local supporters to our DAA and are working towards some joint objectives.
We hope that the work we are doing will ripple out further and are already seeing small local initiatives budding in some of our more rural and seaside areas.
In addition to being a Dementia Action Alliance we are also registered as a Dementia Friendly Community and are working at promoting the Working to be dementia friendly recognition symbol with our local businesses encouraging them to commit to taking steps towards becoming dementia friendly
