Lambeth Dementia Action Alliance

Following a workshop hosted by Age UK Lambeth in October 2017 participants decided to form the Lambeth Dementia Action Alliance and bring together local organisations committed to making Lambeth a ‘dementia friendly community’ by 2023. We have a network representing 20 or so organisations who meet at least twice a year. We welcome all organisations who want to become dementia friendly. Please get in touch!

The Lambeth DAA has developed an action plan to work with local businesses, traders, schools and local organisations to take practical steps to make Lambeth a dementia friendly community over the next three years. There are five Priorities:

Priority 1. Increase awareness and understanding of dementia and the risk factors – particularly among Lambeth’s African and Caribbean communities and younger people

Priority 2. Ensure a good spread of dementia-friendly social and leisure activities and facilities across the borough

Priority 3. Increase the number of dementia-friendly Lambeth businesses and services 

Priority 4. Encourage coordinated dementia-friendly health and care in Lambeth primary, secondary and social care services, including carers support

Priority 5. Develop the DAA with local residents and partners, and communicate its work

If you would like to know more about the Lambeth DAA please contact the Chair: Jackie Meldrum jmeldrum@lambeth.gov.uk or the Co-ordinator: Sophie Keenleyside skeenleyside@lambeth.gov.uk
