Help Abingdon to become more dementia friendly

Healthy Abingdon ( is keen to encourage Abingdon to become more dementia friendly. In order to start this process, we want to bring together a small team of people known as a Dementia Action Alliance (DAA). This team will help shops, businesses, community groups and individuals to be more understanding of the needs of people with dementia and to find ways to make things easier for those with dementia.

The team will also need to organise some awareness events during the Dementia Action Week which runs from 21st to 27th May.

Anyone interested in helping, either as member of the DAA or in other ways, please contact me on 01235 525955 or

We are also interested in contacting any Dementia Friends Champions in the town.
