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?

The Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch has operated an access for all policy for decades, offering support and advice for those wanting to attend our productions and use our facilities.

 

Examples include box office staff reminding patrons with dementia that they have tickets for performances as well as welcoming patrons with disabilities and supporting local community groups.

 

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

We don’t see this as a challenge as this has formed part of our commitment to our community for many years and all staff are onside.

  • We have re-launched our Access Registration Scheme

    Our scheme is to give access to the arts for all.  Discounted tickets are available as well as companion discounts and seats.

    Patrons wishing to access the system need to register and make us aware of their needs, meaning that we are prepared for every time they book with us.

    We know our customers well and work with them to ensure they access theatre.  This can include the provision of staff to help or reminder calls specifically for those with dementia.
