About Us

Wells Dementia Action Alliance was formed in May 2015 by Arnold and Julie Wills with the goal to build an inclusive community for people with dementia and carers, improving their ability to remain independent and keep their right to have choice and control over their own lives. Their retirement from active management of WDAA, and 2 long years of Covid restrictions led to an AGM in January 2022 and the registration of WDAA as a Charity which was approved in July 2022. the registration number of WDAA is 1199653 and it’s charitable objects are:

TO PROMOTE AND PROTECT THE PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH OF PEOPLE LIVING WITH DEMENTIA AND THEIR CARERS AND FAMILIES IN THE COMMUNITY OF WELLS AND ITS SURROUNDING AREA, THROUGH THE PROVISION OF SUPPORT, EDUCATION, INFORMATION AND PRACTICAL ADVICE.

Trustees:

Chair- Denise Denis

Vice Chair- Claire Chettoe

WDAA supports and encourages businesses and organisations in the city to learn what it is like to live with dementia. They can then turn that understanding into action and deliver changes as part of their commitment to bring about change.

Our ambition is to create a Dementia Friendly Community in Wells. In which, people with dementia and their carers are empowered to seek help and feel supported.

WDAA has a new team and we look forward to welcoming you to join us in 2024
