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 will endeavour to reach out to anyone in the community who is in need of support or practical help.  We will make every effort to recognise those living with dementia and their carers and actively engage with them regardless of their culture or beliefs.

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

The amount of work we would love to do will be governed by the number of members of the Church available
