What is a Local Dementia Action Alliance?
A Local Dementia Action Alliance (LDAA) is an easy structure for creating a Dementia Friendly Community (DFC).
A LDAA is a group of people representing different sectors within an area who have come together to create a DFC alongside local people affected by dementia.
A LDAA can be established at any level, be it a village, city, county or even a region. They can overlap geographically and member organisations are encouraged to participate in more than one community.
