Our aim in relation to our Action Plan is to ensure that our students are provided with the knowledge and understanding of Dementia and Dementia Care thus providing them with the skillset as to offer support and continue to contribute to helping those individuals with Dementia.

As part of our lasting commitment to raising awareness to Dementia North Lindsey College will ensure that staff are provided with the training they need as to raise awareness of Dementia as part of the colleges toolkit programme. We aim to increase volunteer participation and build on the relationships with external Health and Care providers as to strengthen the partnership and promote and enhance the awareness of Dementia.

Within our programmes of study we aim to create qualifications which are tailored to meet the needs of individuals who are aiming to progress within the Health and Care sector and for those who require the knowledge and skills to work with patients and family members as to provide support and guidance for those who are affected by Dementia.

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

The challenges we will come across include; ensuring the promotion of Dementia is a continuous theme throughout the college and the time restraints on staff.
