Who We Are
The Tavistock Dementia Alliance was initially formed by members of Tavistock Rotary Club and launched officially
in December 2012.
Pictured at launch are:Dr. Stephen Pearson (Consultant Psychiatrist), June Wildman (Chair of Tavistock Memory Cafe),
Angela Rippon (Patron of Alliance), Tony Parker (Chair of Alliance) and Councillor Robin Musgrave (Mayor , West Devon).
The Alliance remains an entirely voluntary organisation and has recruited a wide range of stakeholders, supporters and experts in the field of dementia. We are now a registered Charity and our aim is to relieve the needs of people with dementia and their carers in Tavistock and surrounding area for the public benefit by:
- The provision of social activities to meet their needs and relieve isolation and loneliness
- Raising awareness and understanding of dementia in Tavistock and the surrounding area by the provision of free training to local businesses and social groups
- Providing accessible information in guides and packages, social media and our website
- Working in association and liaison with other charities and organisations in the Tavistock and the surrounding area.
Our current priorities and projects are contained in our annual Action Plan.
