Dementia Action Alliance is made up of over 900 organisations committed to transforming the quality of life of people living with dementia in the UK and the millions of people who care for them.

Morrish Solicitors have committed to becoming a dementia friendly workplace and we are currently in the process of implementing various steps at all of our offices.

There are 800,000 people with dementia in the UK and this number is set to grow to over one million people by 2025. The financial cost of dementia in the UK is £23 billion each year and growing.

Members of Dementia Action Alliance have signed up to a National Dementia Declaration. Created in partnership with people with dementia and their carers, the Declaration explains the huge challenges presented to our society by dementia and some of the outcomes we are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. Outcomes range from ensuring people with dementia have choice and control over decisions about their lives, to feeling a valued part of family, community and civic life.

We received a certificate at the Bradford District Dementia Action Alliance to recognise that we are ‘working to become Dementia friendly’. The project will begin at our Bradford office, with our offices in Leeds, Pudsey and Yeadon following soon after.
