Dementia Action Alliance

We can now announce that Approach has been accepted into the Dementia Action Alliance. 

"The Dementia Action Alliance is a movement with one simple aim: to bring about a society-wide response to dementia. It encourages and supports communities and organisations across England to take practical actions to enable people to live well with dementia and reduce the risk of costly crisis intervention."

This union therefore allows us to network people and organisations together, provides us with access to resources to share with you and generally try to improve the lives of those with dementia or affected by dementia in our community. 

 

We are very excited by this opportunity and we look forward to sharing more about it with you in the near future.
