Hackney Dementia Action Alliance

Hackney Dementia Action Alliance has been commissioned by the Hackney Dementia Alliance Board, comprising representatives from The City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group, Homerton University Hospital Trust, East London Foundation Trust and Alzheimer’s Society.

Hackney has a large, vibrant and ethnically / culturally diverse population. It is our ambition to reach out to all communities within the Borough to improve the lives of people living with dementia and those of their families and carers.

We aim to achieve this by:

  • Ensuring that we have a strong voice of people living with dementia and their carers, guiding us throughout our journey.
  • Encouraging organisations to see dementia as highly relevant to their business practices and empowering them to take positive action to reduce the stigma and barriers that can confront people with dementia.
  • Spreading a better awareness of dementia within the community and dispelling the misconceptions that often exist.
  • Encouraging as many people as possible, through the Dementia Friends Initiative, to give consideration as to how they personally might make a contribution towards improving the day to day lives of people with dementia.
