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?
CTiP is a network organisation that acts as a gateway to Christian faith communities in Plymouth. We seek to develop a strategic approach to enable Churches and Christian Ministries to appreciate the needs of those living with dementia, their families and carers – becoming more dementia aware.

Increasing the awareness of Dementia among Church leaders.
Gaining the participation of them and their churches.
