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 aim to develop inclusive activity for brain health. Part of how we will deliver deliver better outcomes for people with dementia and their families is by networking across dementia friendly communities, helping people with dementia to access inclusive activities for brain health. We are also looking to develop a bank of dementia friendly support workers.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The main barriers are funding and time. Core funding is what we need, in order to try to overcome the problems of postcode lotteries and limited awareness of services.
Peer Support Group
We run a peer support group for people with dementia.
We will encourage as many others as possible to become Dementia Friends.
