Chichester Dementia Alliance

Introduction

We work in partnership with those who suffer from dementia and their carers, as well as promote Chichester as a Dementia Friendly community. In addition, we share ideas and best practice with many other organisations in the alliance. We are able to signpost to information, resources and products to help those in need.


Our Vision

To work in partnership with people with dementia and their carers, and ensure they provide a focus for all activities undertaken. Promote and sustain Bognor Regis and Chichester as Dementia Friendly communities. In addition, share ideas and best practice during the development of dementia friendly communities in Selsey and Midhurst and other surrounding areas.

Services should also be made available to people who do not have a formal diagnosis of dementia, as well as those that have a formal diagnosis.
