About this cause
Honiton Dementia Action Alliance brings together groups and organisations across our community committed to transforming the lives of people with dementia and their carers We do this by offering Dementia Friends awareness sessions, advising on and supporting dementia friendly activities, environments and policies and sharing these initiatives through our website and social media platforms. Our aim now is raise funds to provide a specialist Admiral Nurse for Honiton and district. An Admiral Nurse provides the specialist dementia support that families need and is funded purely by fundraising and charitable donations.
How this cause brings people in the community together
We are engaging with many local groups such as the cubs, the community college, local businesses, the local sports centre and the local weekly newspaper, who report weekly on our activities. Many volunteers are joining in with fundraising and raising awareness of the problems of coping with dementia. We have the support of the local council and actively encourage participation by the community.
