Poynton Dementia Steering Group

‘Poynton – A Dementia Friendly Town’ is a key project for the Poynton Area Community Partnership (PACP). PACP has therefore joined the Dementia Action Alliance and the Poynton Dementia Steering Group was formed in January 2017.

Dementia Action Alliance comprises over 150 organisations across England who connect, share best practice and take positive action on dementia.

Poynton Dementia Steering Group (PDSG) is made up of representatives from Poynton Town Council, local voluntary groups, professionals supporting people living with dementia, dementia services and carers.

The group has listened to people’s requirements and developed an action plan for Poynton to include increasing the number of Dementia Champions, providing Dementia Awareness Training for local businesses and residents, making Twiddle muffs for people living with dementia and raising awareness of dementia with young people.

As part of Dementia Awareness Week in May 2017, PDSG published a leaflet listing groups in and around Poynton, where people living with dementia, their carers, friends and family are welcome. A copy can be viewed or downloaded here or picked up from the Civic Hall.
