We are working to make B&NES dementia friendly. We do this by engaging with businesses, groups and organisations and asking them to become members and make 3 pledges to become dementia friendly. We also engage with the needs of people living with dementia and help to increase the number of activities that are available for people living with dementia. We promote what services are available for people with dementia and their carers.
Please donate to support our cause.
The B&NES Dementia Action Alliance was initiated by Dementia Friends Champion, Sarah Williams-Martin, who identified a need for supporting people living with dementia in their community.
70% of people living with dementia continue to live at home. Therefore the overreaching aim of the BaNES Action Alliance is to create a dementia friendly community, where people can:-
- travel on public transport
- enjoy sport, cinema and other recreational activities
- go shopping
- run errands
- visit places of worship
- manage day-to-day tasks
We aim to consult with people with dementia and work with councillors, groups and services to establish what is important to people living with dementia in B&NES and identify the needs of these individuals and their carers in order to provide support.
We aim to work with Dementia Friend Champions to make as many Dementia Friends as we can in B&NES.
The BaNES Dementia Action Alliance aims to meet monthly at a central venue with easy accessibility.
