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?

Our vision influences everything we do as an organisation. We make the vision real through direct leadership by people with learning disabilities at all levels ; through our projects and local led companies ; and through giving people real choice and control about how they live their lives. Thera will show that people with a learning disability can be leaders in society.Thera will be controlled by people with learning disabilities. People supported by Thera can say how their Thera company is directed and managed. People with learning disabilities will design the support they want from Thera. 

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

Staff recruitment of a level and ability to support our 'people supported'

Acceptance of their local communities

The people supported wanting to obtain full control of their lives within Therea supported accomodation.
