Aylesbury Town Dementia Action Alliance

History

The previous Mayor of Aylesbury, Cllr Allison Harrison had chosen to support Dementia Awareness as part of her mayoral year in 2015/16. It was with this in mind that Aylesbury Town Council recruited a Communities Officer in April 2016 to lead on creating a ‘Dementia-Friendly’ community.

Background

Aylesbury Town Council has created a goal to make the town of Aylesbury a Dementia-Aware hub - where those living with Dementia, their carers and family as well as those involved in maintaining independent living in the Dementia community can feel supported.

Achievements

We have a dedicated Communities Officer who has successfully completed their Dementia Champion training. As a result of this, Aylesbury Town Council has been focusing on raising the profile of dementia awareness to not only our own staff, but also to members of the public, client-facing staff in various businesses, local community groups and scout and beaver groups in our town. We have welcomed over 50 people as Dementia Friends (including staff and managers at Friars Square Retail Centre) in the town.
