Sandwell Dementia Action AllianceOctober 29 2020
The Sandwell Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) is made up of organisations that operate across Sandwell, which are working towards creating dementia friendly communities to improve the lives of people living with dementia and their carers, within the six towns of Sandwell.
Sandwell DAA is committed to the vision of supporting people along the whole dementia pathway, from prevention to end of life care, including support for their carers and the wider family with their needs.
Relaunched in November 2019, the Sandwell DAA is underpinned by our multi-agency dementia strategy for Sandwell – the ‘Better Lives Dementia Strategy’.
How to join the Sandwell DAA
To become a member of this Local Dementia Action Alliance, organisations sign up to the National Dementia Declaration and submit a short action plan setting out how they will work towards delivering the outcomes outlined in the declaration. Once this has been submitted successfully, the organisation will be considered a member of the Dementia Action Alliance.
