Leeds Dementia Action Alliance

Local businesses, community organisations, arts and leisure providers, faith groups, older people’s groups, schools and higher education providers, transport providers – you all have a very special role in helping to make Leeds a better place for people living with dementia.

It’s the little things that can mean such a lot to a person with dementia… like being given time to explain or pay in a shop or bank, having a helping hand when using transport, feeling welcome and safe in your community, having friends, things to do, ways of remaining a valued member of society.

Working in Leeds

The Leeds branch of the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) supports groups and organisations to help make Leeds a dementia-friendly city, and brings together everyone in Leeds who wants to make a difference for people living with dementia, including families and carers, so people can still participate in everyday life and maintain as much independence as possible.  We don’t think life with a long-term condition should only be about health and care services.

Perhaps you have staff or family members affected by dementia, perhaps you have customers who could benefit from a bit more help, or perhaps you can link up with others in your area on a community project or initiative. However you can get involved, we can help you get started and put you in touch with others who are already making a big difference in their communities.

Leeds DAA is a partnership between Leeds Older People’s Forum and Alzheimer’s Society working with Leeds City Council, sponsored by the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Board.
