Exeter DAA celebrates 10 years and pays tribute to Tony Husband 

Exeter Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) has celebrated their 10-year anniversary with an event to mark this milestone and pay tribute to Alliance supporter and artist, Tony Husband. 

The Alliance, which is a small foundation governed by GivingWorks, was founded by Gina Awad and has been led by her and her small team since 2014. The Exeter DAA aims to raise awareness of dementia and inspire action across Exeter, under their banner of ‘Shining a light on dementia’, and their work has reached far beyond the impact they’ve had in the city. 

A video was made by Jo Earlam, Alliance Board Member and carer for her husband John who lives with mixed dementia, that captures the Alliance’s work and how Tony Husband supported that from 2016 until his death in 2023. You can view the film here:
