NALC publishes new survey on dementia-friendly councils


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has published a new survey on dementia-friendly councils.

In 2020, NALC launched a survey to identify the work that local (parish and town) councils are doing to assist those most vulnerable in their communities and gain insight into potential barriers to this progress. Following this, NALC published the Dementia-Friendly Communities guide, demonstrating the positive impact of building dementia-friendly communities and providing our local councils with the tools to help them develop their own.

The latest survey aims to gather feedback on the usage and effectiveness of this publication. All responses will help support local councils in ensuring that people living with dementia and their families continue to be included in all aspects of community life.

NALC, alongside the University of Plymouth, Faculty of Health and Dementia-Friendly Parishes, believe that local councils are ideally placed as the central point of communities to improve the quality of life of their community. Research outlines the prevalence of dementia in our society and its effects on an individual, such as isolation and loneliness. Dementia-friendly communities can ensure that people living with dementia can live well in their community and have access to an active lifestyle.

The survey closes on 22 July 2022.
