1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

As a community charity that operates under the umbrella of a professional football club we are in an excellent position to promote awareness about dementia and to encourage people to become dementia friends. We are also committed to becoming more dementia aware and friendly across all of our community projects, especially those that are now linked with the older generations.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Training for staff to be able to deliver the projects successfully.
