Newport Dementia Action Alliance

Local alliance information

The Newport Dementia Action Alliance is made up of organisations that operate across the area working together to make Newport dementia- friendly.

How to join the Newport DAA

To become a member of this Local Dementia Action Alliance, organisations sign up to the National Dementia Declaration and submit a short action plan setting out how they will work towards becoming more dementia friendly. Once this has been submitted successfully, the organisation will be considered a member of the Dementia Action Alliance.

Resources such as the National Dementia Declaration and action plan template can be downloaded here, and organisations should use the contact details below to seek guidance or assistance.

Completed action plans should be sent to the relevant contact below.

As an initial step, small organisations and businesses can sign up as supporters of the Newport DAA if they so wish.

Supporters commit to all staff and/or volunteers becoming Dementia Friends, raising awareness of where to signpost people for questions about dementia and local support, and to doing a least one other small action. We have welcomed the following supporters:
