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 Chamber supporting local business / retail outlets, we are in a position to promote this initiative and provide ongoing support. 

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

 

There are no obvious challenges as we are able to complete these activities as part of our role in the community (Alton, Hampshire).
