What is a Local Dementia Action Alliance (LDAA)?

A LDAA is a structure. It provides instructions on how to gather people together, how to have meetings, set terms of reference and so on.  However, the action areas of each LDAA are different, chosen by the community as areas of focus. An LDAA is also one way of working to become a recognised dementia-friendly community via Alzheimer’s Society's Recognition scheme.


Alzheimer’s Society will collect your information via the registration form, and will share this with the lead contact from the LDAA that you would like to join. Each LDAA acts independently and is responsible for how it uses information about its members. Alzheimer’s Society acts as an administrator for the content on this website; however each LDAA is managed by external volunteers.
