Dementia

Southend Dementia Action Alliance

The Dementia Action Alliance is a national movement for social change made up of organisations from the:

  • public
  • private sector
  • charitable sectors

All of who are committed to changing the quality of life for people living with dementia in the UK and those who care for them.

Each alliance member has produced an action plan to bring about improvements for anyone affected by dementia that they deal with directly or indirectly.

All members have introduced a dementia friend’s initiative into their workplace. This has created thousands of dementia friends all over Southend.

To make Southend a ‘Dementia Friendly’ town the council is working locally with:

  • businesses
  • services
  • community groups

A town where people affected by dementia feel they can live their lives with access to the services and support they need.

For a list of members actions see the Dementia Action Alliance website.
