• The Community Executive Team

    This team is made up of representatives from the community who have specific skills; experience and/or access to resources who can influence and advise the Steering Group on matters or ideas of priority, need and development across Rossendale.

    This group will grow in terms of access and skills offering as the plans for Dementia Friendly Rossendale to expand. This is where initial plans for all the community activity are captured and is being shaped to be the primary point of contact for anyone affected by dementia that is looking for information; support; ideas of how they can help; a referral point for GPs and other health professionals; access to awareness and other training events; signposts to help areas such as respite care and counselling; and there will be numerous other areas as the model develops.

    Key to this development is the huge and on-going task of scoping and capturing all the current activity and the outputs from the engagement process.
