What are the core values of the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA)?
The Dementia Action Alliance was formed in 2010 with the launch of National Dementia Declarations. These are 7 statements that were developed by people living with dementia and their carers.
The Essex, Thurrock and Southend Dementia Strategy also provides the foundations for the work of the DAA’s in Greater Essex.
Any action plans created are formed from the voice of those living with and affected by dementia to ensure local challenges are understood and addressed to ensure people affected by dementia can live independently for as long as possible and remain active in the community.
By bringing together members from all across the community they continue to make commitments, using their collective expertise to influence Government policy and societal attitudes towards dementia.
