About the project

The purpose of this work is to provide a snapshot of the help and support that is currently available in Burntwood to people living with dementia and their carers. This insight will be combined with local intelligence provided by councillors to guide the Town Council in its efforts to address gaps in provision, remove barriers to services and direct support to local groups providing early advice and support. The Town Council’s aim is to help this group to live independently for as long as possible within the community and then ensure a smooth transition into supported living.
