About this cause

BDAA is a tiny charity which has the huge aim of making Bristol the most dementia friendly city in the UK. There are over 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, 4,500 of whom live in Bristol. BDAA works to support those living with dementia and their loved ones, and educates the wider society by: running our monthly Happy Days Memory Café; organising dementia awareness sessions for organisations, clubs, groups, businesses; running dementia events, workshops and information stalls; and running a website with free resources. We believe that people with dementia have the right to a good quality of life and to remain independent in their local community. We will address negative attitudes and raise awareness and understanding of dementia.

How this cause brings people in the community together

This will enable people living with dementia and their loved ones, who are often lonely and isolated, to attend events safely. This promotes inclusion, as not everyone can afford a car, many people diagnosed with dementia have had to relinquish their driving licence, and people living on the peripheries of Bristol may have less frequent and more complicated public transport options.
