St George and Sutherland Shire Dementia Alliance
St George & Sutherland Dementia Alliance was formed as a result of Dementia Friendly Communities project funding to 3Bridges Community in 2018.
The Dementia Alliance was not part of the original funding application and it has developed organically throughout the need to have a body that will advise and guide community care sector in the area on issues relating to dementia and in particularly to people living with dementia in the areas of St George and Sutherland Shire.
The Dementia Alliance consists of number of community care services/business in the area and has a person living with dementia and two carers of people with dementia as representatives from the community.
The Dementia Alliance is guided by the Dementia Advisory Group – a group of people living with dementia and their carers that will inform and guide the work of the Alliance. This group will meet four times per year at 3Bridges Carss Park office. 3Bridges Community supports the administrative side of the Dementia Alliance.
If you live in the area and would like to get involved, please contact us.
