The Dementia Academic Action Group (DAAG) is a multi-phase, two-year collaboration project between University of Northampton, University of Bedfordshire, University of West London and Oxford Brookes University. This project was commissioned by Health Education England Thames Valley in response to Health Education England’s mandate from the Department of Health to ensure all NHS staff are trained in Tier 1 foundation level dementia awareness training.
DAAG has developed and delivered Tier 1 dementia awareness training to health and social care organisations across the Thames Valley region and from this produced a free to access training package. This training aims to raise awareness of what dementia is and how it affects people with dementia along with their family, relatives, carers, friends and significant others.
