LDAA Projects and Achievements

Covid
The pandemic has caused major disruption and distress within the lives of people with dementia and family carers in Liverpool as elsewhere, including the dislocation of support services. Member organisations of Liverpool DAA have worked hard to lessen the impacts as far as possible and to find Covid-compliant means to substitute support, via online and phone means and others. In particular, strenuous efforts have been made and shown success within the additionally isolated BAME communities.

Liverpool Dementia Strategy / Forward Plan
In 2019 Liverpool DAA (in conjunction with its corporate partner Dementia Action Liverpool) completed a research project and produced a report and recommendations for Liverpool City Council and Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group to update their dementia strategy. These were accepted and Liverpool DAA continues to take part in the monitoring of implementation although this has been severely disrupted by the Covid pandemic.

Dementia Friendly Liverpool City Region
Liverpool DAA is playing a leading role in the action-planning to honour the Dementia Pledges initiated by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram and signed by local authorities representatives in 2018. The Chair of Liverpool DAA now Chairs the multi-agency Liverpool City Region Dementia Advisory Group which is managing the Combined Authority's agreement to seek Dementia Friendly Community recognition.

Liverpool DAA Action Plan
Details of LDAA's proposals and activities for the next 12 months can be found on our partner's website www.dementiaactionliverpool.com, including work with transport businesses, within BAME communities and with SURF and TIDE, representing people living with dementia and family carers. 

Dementia Action Week 2021
Liverpool DAA has provided leadership within the City Region in mounting a coordinated programme of mainly online events and activities to spread awareness, offer advice and support, provide opportunities to take part in enjoyable activities and promote Alzheimer's Society's "Cure The Care System" campaign.
