What is a Local Dementia Action Alliance?
A Local Dementia Action Alliance (LDAA) is an easy and proven structure for creating a dementia friendly community (DFC) and is a group of people who have come together to create a DFC.
A Local Alliance can be established at any level, be it a village, city, county or even a region. They can overlap geographically and member organisations are encouraged to participate in more than one community.
