Gateshead Dementia Action Alliance

The Gateshead Dementia Action Alliance is made up of local businesses, cultural venues, libraries, leisure services, housing services, council staff and many more.  They are all part of a community who want to make a commitment to making Gateshead a community which is inclusive and understanding of people living with Dementia, their family, carers and friends.

We have three aims to help support Gateshead to become a Dementia Friendly place

1 - We aim to offer or signpost to information sessions about Dementia and how to be Dementia Friendly which is available at no cost.   Dementia Friendly is an initiative to change people’s perceptions of Dementia and is an Alzheimers Society Initiative.

You can follow the lin below for more information.

2 - We want to be able to signpost people living with Dementia and their carer’s and  families to activities, organisations and venues in and around Gateshead

3 - We want to give a voice to people living with Dementia, their families and carers in Gateshead. Ensuring people can live a full and active life in our community.

 If your organisation would like to be a part of the Gateshead Dementia Action Alliance you can make a pledge on how you would like to be more dementia friendly. If you are a venue which has a Dementia Friendly offer please detail this offer on your organisations pledge page.
