Supporting the Voluntary and Community Sector in the East Riding of Yorkshire

Hull Dementia Academy Action Alliance

The idea of making our communities better places to live for people with dementia is something which engages the enthusiasm and interest of all sorts of people.  Traders, leisure companies, transport providers, planners, services providers, heath and social care organisations, charities are all potentially affected, all have a role to play in forming a vision about what a dementia- friendly community should look like. The emphasis in Hull is on working with people with dementia, their carers and communities to promote positive attitudes and enabling people to participate in everyday life, maintaining as much independence as possible. For the past two years the Academy has been working towards raising dementia awareness across all sections of communities. Our approach is to promote practical actions that businesses, services providers and community groups can do to make a difference.
