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.

Find out about LDAAs in your area by searching below or selecting a region.
