Description

Join the Communities Together Network at the recently estalished Dementia Hub for an in-depth discussion on supporting Barnet to be a dementia friendly place to live and visit.

  • Jo Cahill from the Alzheimer’s Society will talk about the borough's dementia cafes and dementia advisors;
  • Sarah Perrin from Adults Social Care will talk about wider initiatives in Barnet to support those with dementia;
  • Patrick Gray, also from the Alzheimer's Society, will talk about the Dementia Action Alliance, how it is supporting Barnet to be a dementia friendly place and how members of the Communities Together Network can get involved.

The session will begin with a tour of the newly established Barnet Dementia Hub which provides a weekly programme of activities to support those with dementia and their carers.

There will also be an open forum for attendees to bring issues that are of concern and interest to their organisations and their service users to the attention of the Communities Together Network.

About the Communities Together Network

The Communities Together Network is an opportunity for voluntary, faith and community sector and public sector organisation in Barnet to build strategic relationships, share good practice, gather information.

The Communities Together Network is co-chaired by Kiran Vagarwal, Strategic Lead for Community Safety at Barnet Council and Julie Pal, Chief Executive at CommUNITY Barnet.

The aims of the network are to:

  • promote community wellbeing and encourage cohesive and safe communities by sharing information and talking about what matters to communities and residents
  • operate at a proactive and reactive level in response to emergency incidents, so that emergency services and the voluntary, faith and community sector can work together to monitor, understand, reduce and prevent community tension
  • allow Borough strategic partners to have early sight of strategic issues affecting the voluntary, faith and community sector
  • facilitate and promote joint working between the voluntary, faith and community sector and the statutory and business sector
  • act as a consultative forum to discuss, identify and raise issues of concern

The network is open to all community, voluntary and faith groups in Barnet.
