West Suffolk MP Matt Hancock paid a visit to a Haverhill dementia action group which has plans to make the town as friendly as possible for people suffering from the condition.

The Haverhill Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) was formed in April this year as part of a collaborative initiative originally implemented by Haverhill Community Care to make the town more dementia aware.

The Haverhill DAA, which is a not-for-profit organisation, is looking to recruit members to inspire the community to join in and make practical changes.

Mr Hancock said: “The Haverhill Dementia Action Alliance has plans to make Haverhill a dementia friendly town and to raise awareness about this debilitating disease.

“Increasingly, more of us know of a friend or a family member who is living with dementia – it is important that these people and their families are supported and get the help and information they need.”
