Dementia Strategy 2022-2026: Stage two consultation

Closed 17 Jun 2022

Opened 13 May 2022


The Southend, Essex and Thurrock (SET) Dementia Strategy lifecycle ended in 2021 and due to Covid-19 an update was delayed, although partnership activities continued during this period as did evidence gathering to understand the impact of the previous strategy.

Essex County Council, Southend-on-Sea City Council and Thurrock Council carried out a public consultation from 15 February 2021 to 5 April 2021 to inform a refresh of the SET Dementia Strategy and asked questions to establish if people agreed with the nine priorities and their reasons for this.

Why your views matter

This is the second stage of consultation on the strategy refresh, seeking further views on the proposed commitments to deliver against the agreed nine priorities.

In this consultation we ask whether or not you agree that the proposed commitments are the right ones, and if there is anything else you would like to see included.

There will be opportunities to add any comments or suggestions, and all feedback received will be reviewed and used to inform the final version of the Dementia Strategy.

If you require this consultation in an alternative format or have any questions, please contact
