Honiton Dementia Action Alliance brings together groups and organisations across our community committed to transforming the lives of people with dementia and their carers. Honiton Dementia Action Alliance is attempting to bring about a community-wide response to dementia.
Honiton Dementia Action Alliance is coordinated by a steering group who meet once a month. The group is made up from a diverse range of members of our community including carers. The steering group actively seeks consultation with people with dementia and always welcomes new members.
Our purpose is to galvanise action by coordinating and supporting local groups and organisations to join the alliance. We do this by offering Dementia Friends awareness sessions, advising on and supporting dementia friendly activities, environments and policies and sharing these initiatives.
Here are a few photos of the Honiton Dementia Action Alliance Steering Group working hard at their monthly meeting.read more
