Welcome to Bristol Dementia Action Alliance (BDAA). We were formed on the 9th July 2013 as a result of a public meeting asking the question “Is Bristol a Dementia Friendly City?” Our conclusions were that, although there was a lot of support and help for people living with Dementia and their carers, more could be done. Click below on “What we do” to see what we are doing to increase Dementia awareness.
We have adopted the Purple Angel Campaign as our main delivery tool. This was started in Torquay by Norman McNamara, a man who has Dementia with Lewy Bodies. Following an incident in a local supermarket where he was treated very badly he and a few of his friends began the campaign and more information on this can be found here.

We do this by running dementia awareness sessions to any group or individual – click here to see what we do.
