The Dementia Community Activation Co-ordinator is a position co-funded by the HSE and the Alzheimer Society of Ireland. The Dementia Community Activation Coordinator is working with national organisations and key community stakeholders to support community dementia champions across Ireland. The Co-ordinator seeks to grow the number of champions and people within communities to take action to create sustainable dementia inclusive communities.

As the question relates to a service matter, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond directly to the Deputy as soon as possible.
