The Kent Dementia Action Alliance are a group of Kent organisations who want to work together to better meet the needs of people with dementia so everyone can live well within their communities.
A wide range of partners are now members of the Kent Dementia Action Alliance, a full list of members along with their individual action plans can be found on the Dementia Action Alliance website.
The membership of the Kent Wide Dementia Action Alliance and the more local Alliances and Dementia friendly community forums are ‘open’ to all. Organisations, businesses, groups and residents can get involved at the level which best suits them. This could be by becoming Full members, Supporters or by joining a smaller local Dementia Friendly Community forum.
This website is collectively owned by the Kent Dementia Action Alliance and brings together much of the activity that has taken place since the County of Kent has been working towards becoming Dementia Friendly.
This web platform is the result of an opportunity to try something different and has been developed using the SILK approach, Starting with people. We have worked alongside people living with direct experience of dementia to develop this site at every step of the way. Find out more at Making this Website.
We hope this website will give you:
Reassurance so you can see that many other people are facing similar experiences
Advice signposting to local organisations who can help you find appropriate services and support
Opportunities so you can get out and about if you want to
Inspiration so you know what is possible
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who commit their time, energy and ideas. Working together to develop the strong foundations for a Dementia Friendly Kent.
