Darlington Dementia Action Alliance
The Darlington Dementia Action Alliance will achieve its aims by bringing together organisations from public, private and charity sectors - not just from health and social care , but from sectors such as the emergency services, retailers and transport operators and community facilities
The ultimate aim is to encourage local communities in Darlington and the surrounding area to become dementia friendly - increasing awareness of the condition and how the community can work together to reduce stigma allowing people with dementia to contribute as fully as possible to community life.
Challenges will include making sure that we encourage a wide range of organisations to become part of the local DAA movement, and that changes made reflect the needs of our diverse local communities.
Other challenges will include getting the correct members in to fully achieve the goals of the Darlington Dementia Action Alliance and looking at ways to continuously improve.
