Barnet Dementia Action Alliance

Barnet  Dementia Action Alliance is committed to supporting people with dementia to live a full and active life, enabling them to maximise their independence and wellbeing and ensuring that they and their friends and family are empowered to maintain their own health and wellbeing.  This commitment had been implemented through the Barnet’s Dementia Manifesto (2015) and significant progress has been made towards becoming a dementia friendly borough.

Too many people affected by dementia feel society fails to understand the condition they live with, its impact or how to interact with them. That’s why people with dementia sometimes feel lonely and withdrawn as the condition progresses. Not only people with dementia but their carers too feel cut off from society.

People affected by dementia still have an incredible amount to offer to their community. If appropriately supported, they can continue to play an active and valuable role even years after diagnosis.

Our ambition in Barnet is to create a sustainable dementia friendly community, to tackle stigma, raise awareness and promote opportunities for people with dementia to live well.

Purpose of the Dementia Alliance:

The main purpose of the alliance is in collaboration with all partners to work towards becoming a dementia friendly community. This will include application for formal recognition as a dementia friendly borough through Alzheimer’s Society accreditation process.

The alliance provides a platform for partners to share information and good practice, identify and review local dementia friendly activities, to explore opportunities for future collaboration between the partners and agree actions.
