Dementia Action Alliance brings together leading organisations across England committed to transforming health and social care outcomes for people affected by dementia.



We are Dementia Action Alliance – the alliance of over 150 national organisations across England who connect, share best practice and take action on dementia. Everything we do is in partnership, and informed by people living with dementia, and those that care for them.

We were formed in 2010 with the launch of the National Dementia Declaration. This saw members commit to action that radically improve the lives of people living with dementia. Today, our members continue to make commitments, using their collective expertise to influence Government policy and societal attitudes towards dementia.
