Annual General Meeting
13th April 2022
Secretary Hannah Davies
The past year has seen Dementia Friendly Swansea (DFS) develop into a much more serious co-production of all organisations across Swansea, helping much larger numbers of people affected by Dementia. A number of volunteer members have taken part in multi-organisation meetings, managed requests for support via social media and email and we have created the Dementia Hwb in The Quadrant shopping centre in the heart of Swansea.
As we all find new ways of settling into life with Covid-19 ever present, DFS is keen to help inform decision makers about the needs of those living with dementia and those helping them. We will continue to ask to be given a voice at meetings and we will strive to reflect the opinions of the wide range of people that we are representing.
As agreed at our monthly meetings and to enable us to continue to increase our support to those that need help and in turn gain the required funding, we are in the process of registering with the Charities Commission as a Foundation Charitable Incorporated Organisation. This will change our structure, removing the need for the annual appointment of Board members to an appointment of Trustees for up to a maximum of 4 years.
