Group earns Voscur
Bristol Dementia Action Alliance (BDAA) were presented with a Voscur Award for Social Impact in February. Key figures from the charity attended the event at the SS Great Britain where BDAA received the award for Resilience.
Chair Tony Hall said: “This Resilience Award is a team effort. I want to thank all those people who voted for us.”
BDAA was launched in 2013 with the objective “To make Bristol THE Dementia Friendly City of the UK.”
Tony Hall added: “We have to change the thinking and behaviour of 500K people in respect of the condition. We don’t do what we do looking for awards, but this recognises that there is a need for what we do and that we are having an impact. It also gets dementia on the agenda and talked about which reduces the stigma and embarrassment surrounding it.”
