Where: The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium
Who is involved: Municipalities in Brabant in collaboration with Flanders, Belgium, and Limburg, Germany.
Nature of activity: The PG-raad started in 2012 through inter-regional collaboration, creating and supporting four local networks in Brabant, in the lead municipalities, to create dementia-friendly municipalities. A lead municipality starts by forming a local network consisting of a group of stakeholders that is as diverse as possible. With the lead municipalities of Brabant, the PG-raad has signed a declaration of intent in which the role and the tasks of the municipality in the project are described.
These lead municipality networks receive support and project guidance from the PG-raad over four years consisting of:
- Support in setting up the local network Dementia-friendly municipality (DVG network).
- Project guidance and advice in developing plans.
- Offering substantive expertise in the development of trailblazer actions.
- Input of expertise from other provincial networks
