Dementia

Southend Dementia Action Alliance

Nationally, the Dementia Action Alliance is a movement for social change made up of organisations from the public, private and charitable sectors committed to transforming the quality of life of people living with dementia in the UK and the millions who care for them. Each alliance member produces an Action Plan to bring about improvements for anyone affected by dementia that they are directly or indirectly in contact with. All members have also introduced the dementia friends initiative into their workplace and created thousands of dementia friends throughout Southend. Locally, businesses, services and community groups are working in partnership with Southend Borough Council to make Southend-on-Sea a ‘Dementia Friendly’ town, where people affected by dementia feel confident knowing they can live their lives with access to the services and support they need to fully participate in community life.
