About Us

Community Action on Dementia Brent Alliance: This is made up of organisations working across the borough to make the lives of people living with dementia and their carers better, including Community Action on Dementia Brent, housing associations, and others

Peer Support: Enabling people living with dementia to use their own experience of overcoming or dealing with their distress and experience to support others who are currently living with dementia, particularly those with a new diagnosis. Read more about our Peer Support project on the ‘Get Involved’ page of this website.

Dementia Awareness:  Raising awareness through a programme for residents, businesses and public sector services in Brent so that they are more aware and understand how dementia may impact on individuals.

Community Connections: Supporting Brent residents, groups and businesses to pledge and deliver an action that helps to create a dementia friendly borough

Dementia Support Services: Tell us what services are available in Brent and these can be listed on our Services webpage.

Influence quality and format of support services: Creating a ‘voice’ for people living with dementia and their family or carers to ensure they will influence the design and commissioning of services.

Community Champions: Developing a programme where individuals will be trained to act as community champions; they will be a bridge between their own community, those living with dementia and their families and the statutory and community service sectors.

      Brent have made a commitment to become dementia friendly borough and we are proud of the work we have done already to support people living with dementia and their carers, but we know there is so much more we can achieve by harnessing the local community.

      Community Action on Dementia, Brent Council and Brent CCG are holding this event to publicise and engage people living with dementia, citizens, local businesses and the provider sector to rise to the challenge and help deliver the promise of a dementia-friendly Brent by 2020.

      We would really value your support and attendance at what we hope will be a positive and engaging session that will act as a catalyst for our vision.
