The Kent Dementia Action Alliance has evolved from a community necessity to better meet the needs of people with dementia. It had its roots in a Whole System collaborative and a desire to integrate social care and mental health services.
In recognising the need for people to Live Well with Dementia It subsequently identified the need to involve a wider range of partners including police forces, fire and rescue services, local authorities, local transport, charities, community groups, businesses, care providers, health trusts, and people living with dementia and their carers.
Desired outcomes delivered by individual member’s action plans range from ensuring people with dementia have choice and control over decisions about their lives, to feeling a valued part of family, community and civic life. It is not a statutory body and has no legal authority. Accountability for dementia services remains through the existing legal process of each organisation.
