Kent Dementia Action Alliance


The Kent Dementia Action Alliance has evolved from a community necessity to better meet the needs of people with dementia. It had its roots in a Whole System collaborative and a desire to integrate social care and mental health services. In recognising the need for people to Live Well with Dementia It subsequently identified the need to involve a wider range of partners including police forces, fire and rescue services, local authorities, local transport, charities, community groups, businesses, care providers, health trusts, and people living with dementia and their carers.


Desired outcomes delivered by individual member’s action plans range from ensuring people with dementia have choice and control over decisions about their lives, to feeling a valued part of family, community and civic life. It is not a statutory body and has no legal authority.  Accountability for dementia services remains through the existing legal process of each organisation.

The Kent Wide Dementia Action Alliance is more than just a talking shop of people discussing their individual action plans. We are also using this as the mechanism for sharing good practice, ideas and learning between the numerous more locally based Dementia action alliances and dementia friendly community forums. 

Over the coming year we have a number of 'show and tell' presentations from some of the local organisations, examples of collaborative and joint working, innovative projects from local people and volunteers

Everyone has something to give to a local alliance, no matter the size of the contribution. The Kent DAA want to acknowledge that and to celebrate the steps made so far by allowing people to share their achievements.
