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 school, we have made it a priority this year to raise awareness of Dementia.  We have organised Dementia Friends assemblies for all year groups and have also run a staff awareness session.  All students and staff have been encouraged to make the pledge to support a Dementia Friendly approach.  We are also in the process of setting up awareness sessions for parents.

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

We would like support on providing more practical support for people living with dementia in our area.  We currently have no links existing.

  • Support for stakeholders

    We want to ensure that any stakeholders, including staff and parents/carers, are adequately supported when working with our school. We want to ensure that frontline staff have an awareness of Dementia and will give suitable help to anybody living with Dementia who contacts us. We also want to ensure that any of our staff who are living with Dementia receive adequate support to continue working.
