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 membership organisation, supporting local businesses, we are in a position to promote this initiative to our members to encourage them to sign up to the HDAA.

There are no obvious challengers as we regularly communicate with our members.
