This year BUDI attended the Annual Dementia Action Alliance meeting hosted in the beautiful Central Hall, Westminster. This meeting brings together a range of dementia stakeholders from around the nation to discuss current challenges faced by those affected by dementia. This year the focus was on access to services through faith organisations and NHS hospitals.
In 2013, 250 nationwide representatives attended this event. This year just over 400 delegates arrived to represent their region and affiliation with dementia. The growing numbers of people attending this national event highlights the ever increasing importance of acknowledging dementia and understanding how this condition will continue to affect the communities in which we live.
The 4th Dementia Action Alliance annual report has just been published and gives details all of the businesses and organisations who have joined the Dementia Action Alliance, locally and nationally. BUDI is a proud member of the national Dementia Alliance and we continue to strive to meet our national targets to ensure that people with dementia are heard, seen and valued.
