Rotherham Dementia Action Alliance


Rotherham Action Alliance is proud to have worked alongside South Youkshire Police to launch Herbert Protocol A risk management and information gathering tool for use when a person is reported as missing.

Rotherham Dementia Action Alliance is committed to helping raise awareness of dementia and its impact upon those who have the condition or are otherwise affected by it. It is also committed to help facilitate change which will enable local people to live well with dementia.

We know from listening to the experiences of those who are directly affected by dementia, and through such as the Rotherham Dementia Forum which also includes families and carers, that many barriers still need to be broken down if every aspect of our community life is to become welcoming, accessible and supportive.

As a result we started to work alongside local dementia related services and are now also actively seeking to encourage, stimulate and support all types of local organisations, groups and businesses in developing dementia related action plans and related activities with the objective of developing a genuinely dementia friendly community. 

We believe that creating a more dementia friendly Rotherham is something that will not only benefit those affected by dementia now but that it will make it an even better place to live in and do business in for generations to come. So we urge you to join us now!
