Ribble Valley’s Dementia Action Alliance, the lead community organisation recognised by the Alzheimer’s Society, is inviting Dementia Champions to join the alliance to deliver dementia awareness sessions in Ribble Valley.

The alliance has contacts with schools, churches, businesses, supermarkets and parish communities with the aim of making all towns and villages in Ribble Valley dementia friendly.
