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 parish council we support our whole community. Our councillors are committed to attending Dementia Friends' sessions to improve our understanding of dementia which will help us to take into consideration those in our community who are affected by dementia.

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

Sourcing Dementia Friends sessions
