Local dementia charity makes awards finals
Bristol Dementia Action Alliance (BDAA) is one of three finalists for the Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Friendly Community of the year – City or County award.
Chair Tony Hall and Trustee John Moore are representing the charity at the national awards in London on 22 November.
The annual awards celebrate and showcase the achievements of individuals, groups and organisations across the UK who have led the way on creating dementia friendly communities and improving the lives of everybody affected by dementia.
With an estimated 850,000 people living with the condition in the UK – a number predicted to rise substantially over the coming years, BDAA’s work is vitally important. It is part of an “Alliance” of similar groups throughout the UK, working towards enabling their communities to become more Dementia aware.
Chair Tony Hall who set up the charity five years ago, said: ”We are delighted to receive recognition of all our hard work. We are a small local charity with a huge aim – to make Bristol THE Dementia Friendly City of the UK.”
