The aim of the Teignbridge DAA is to ensure that Teignbridge district becomes a dementia friendly community.

  • Building a network of organisations that are committed to, and taking, action
  • To improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers
  • Enhancing member work to improve the lives of people with dementia
  • Developing and delivering joint work on common dementia events
  • Developing and updating outcome indicators to monitor the impact of the Alliance
  • Running engaging member driven events (fun events).
