BDAA has won a Voscur Award!

Bristol DAA has won a Voscur!

At last night’s Voscur Awards for Social Impact at the SS Great Britain, BDAA received the award for Resilience. You can see the photos on our FB page and we would like to say “Thank you” to all those people who voted for us.

We were launched in 2013 with the objective “To make Bristol THE Dementia Friendly City of the UK”, so we have to change the thinking and behaviour of 500K people in respect of the condition. We don’t do what we do looking for awards, but this recognises that there is a need for what we do and that we are having an impact. It also gets dementia on the agenda and talked about which reduces the stigma and embarrassment surrounding it.

If you’d like to know more, check out our website www.bdaa.org.uk, receive our quarterly newsletter or perhaps volunteer for us.
