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?

We work with a number of businesses and organisations to create and deliver content for a wide range of audiences.

As an organisation we pledge for our staff to become dementia friends, and to take training on using appropriate language when describing dementia in our own publicity and marketing materials

Similarly where delivering training and working with clients who are seeking to work in this area we pledge to make sure our training materials comply with this language, and that we explain why we are supporting this initiative.

We also pledge to become involved in networks or like-minded businesses and organisations to support this work.

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

Our challenges will be around raising awareness of understanding of dementia among our own staff and also among partner clients, and creating policies and materials to support this

Equally as a small organisation we need to create time to support partner organisations in their work.
