We aim to raise awareness of dementia at a local level in order to reduce the stigma of dementia and encourage people in the local community who have dementia or are worried about their memory to seek and be given patience, kindness, understanding and support.
We want to help to ensure the person with dementia is not excluded from anything that they would reasonably want to do including encouraging people to use leisure, cultural and spiritual resources in the North Lincolnshire area.
We will focus on Living Well with dementia and will promote this across the Community with the aim of supporting all members of the Alliance and surrounding community to strive for excellence in supporting people with dementia and their carers and creating a dementia friendly community in the North Lincolnshire area.
