Local people invited to launch of the Sandwell Better Lives Dementia Strategy

Text size:
For the last few months Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG has been working with Sandwell Council and the Dementia Action Alliance, to develop a joint strategy for Sandwell, that describes how we plan to improve dementia services and other support for our local population.

As part of this process an engagement exercise was carried out to listen to the views of local people with lived experience of dementia, as well as other stakeholders, to help us understand what’s important to them, their priorities and what could be improved. This was vital because we wanted to make sure our strategy is focused on the right outcomes for people with dementia and their carers, and captures the essence of what we have heard during our ongoing engagement.

We are excited to inform you that the Sandwell Better Lives Dementia Strategy has now been finalised and has received support and approval from the Sandwell Health and Wellbeing Board. We would be delighted if you were able to join us at our strategy launch event as detailed below:
