Arun District Dementia Action Alliance

To increase awareness of Dementia across the Arun District and how the disease can affect individuals and their families.  Using the five dementia statements and ‘creating a dementia friendly community’ guidelines we will work with the various sectors, to highlight to organisations, groups and service providers the small changes they can make  to help support local people to live well with dementia.

There a several Alliances within West Sussex although there is gap within Arun.

Since the initial meeting we have had 2 meetings. Established roles and responsibilities. Gathered a list of contacts and identified contacts for Dementia Friend Champions.

 The Arun District will hold meetings bi-monthly. To join the Arun DAA contact one of the Chairpersons or the Main Contact via e-mail or telephone.
