“The NDAA enables transformational change across health and social care that members couldn’t achieve alone. Each member takes action. Putting the experience of people affected by dementia to the fore, we reach out to the marginalised and ignored and unite hospitals and care providers in our national programmes.”
“Being a member of the national NDAA is important to me in staying connected with other organisations and key people all striving to improve dementia care. I believe the opportunity to share experiences, ideas and innovations is crucial in developing a cohesive and collective voice for the benefit of families affected by dementia.”
“The work of the NDAA is very important to me in my role as National Clinical Director for Dementia. Raising the profile of dementia and reaching out to individuals, organisations and communities is so important in improving the lived experience of people with dementia, their families and carers.”
Frequently asked questions
The National Dementia Action Alliance is the independent network and coming together of over 100 national organisations across England within the health and social care sector, to connect, share best practice and take action on dementia.
The NDAA was formed in 2010 with the launch of the National Dementia Declaration. The NDAA supports its national members to work together and campaign to radically improve the health & social care outcomes of people affected by dementia.
The Secretariat supports and coordinates the members of the National Dementia Action Alliance. This allows them to work in partnership and inspire each other to adopt new practices that radically improve health and social care outcomes for people living with dementia and their carers.
The onus is on the members to drive the work of the NDAA forward, with the Secretariat providing assistance.
Membes can attend free regular meetings, receive free monthly newsletters and manage a dedicated member’s page and profile on the NDAA website. That allows you to submit news stories and events, attend webinars and roundtables plus take part in influencing campaigns and attend our annual conference for free.
A member of the NDAA can choose leave the alliance at any time and withdraw consent. If this is the case they just need to inform the secretariat and they will remove the member’s information from the website and remove all records.
