Why join Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Dementia Action Alliance?

Across the country, local Dementia Action Alliances bring together organisations, businesses and individuals committed to improving the lives of people affected by dementia.  Join us if you want to:

  • Share best practice -around dementia
  • Connect organisations and individuals- interested in dementia
  • Take action on dementia
  • Give a voice to people with dementia and their carers


  • If you are an individual affected by dementia, join us to help direct priorities to ensure good quality support for people living with dementia and their families. 
  • If you are an individual who cares about dementia, join us to work towards a more dementia friendly area.

We use the national Dementia Friends programme to increase understanding and to take action on dementia.  For more on Dementia Friends, see https://www.dementiafriends.org.uk 

2. Organisations and Businesses 

Become a Supporter organisation - Commit to three actions on dementia for the year ahead to be recognised as a Supporter organisation – and you can use the nationally recognised “Working to become dementia friendly” logo.

3. Dementia Friendly Communities

We are committed to supporting Dementia Friendly Communities across the Shropshire,Telford and Wrekin area.

  • If you have already formed a “Dementia-Friendly Community” which has been recognised by the Alzheimer’s Society, share experiences – and expertise- with others in the same situation in other communities across the county.
  • If you are considering forming a “Dementia-Friendly Community”, we can help you draw on experience across the county to help you move forwards. 

None of us has to reinvent the wheel – together we can support and encourage each other!
