Who we are

Jersey Alzheimer’s Association (JAA) exists to provide advice, support and information to the community as a whole and since 2012 we’ve seen an increase of over 235% in the amount of people seeking our support and accessing our activities. This includes people of all ages, their families, friends and carers.

As well as o­ffering a counselling and family support service, a number of community activities and a weekend Saturday day care centre, JAA provides education and awareness sessions to schools, community groups, local companies and organisations.

In 2020, the annual cost of running JAA will be over £300k with less than 10% of that money coming from Government funding. That means, each year we need to fundraise a huge amount of money just to keep off­ering what we do today.

Our Mission

JAA raises awareness and improves understanding of dementia throughout Jersey. By providing information and advice we seek to support anybody a­ffected by dementia.

Our Vision

Our vision is quite simply to make Jersey a more dementia friendly island where all those aff­ected by dementia are understood, welcomed and supported.

Our Stakeholders

It is essential that those a­ffected by dementia are at the very forefront of our work and that people’s personal experiences shape the work that JAA does now and in the future. JAA will work to enable people a­ffected by dementia to be involved, to be heard and to influence in whatever way they can.
