The Havering Mayoral Office

In May each year, Havering Council elects a Councillor to serve as Mayor for 12 months. They are elected at an official Mayor-Making ceremony at the Town Hall. The Mayor’s role is to be the borough’s civic and ceremonial head for their 12 months in office. They attend around 600 engagements throughout their year, from local fundraising and community events to representing Havering when meeting dignitaries. Together with the Queen’s representative, the Deputy Lieutenant, the Mayor of Havering receives members of the Royal Family and VIPs during official visits to the borough.

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?

I serve the public and therefore have a role to play in assisting people with dementia to live in an enabling and supportive environment where they feel valued and understood and have a sense of belonging and of being a valued part of family, community and civic life.

During my year as Mayor of Havering I aim to raise the profile of dementia and the services available to people with dementia and their carers in the Borough.

Through my fundraising I will support the work of the Havering Alzheimer’s Society.

I will increase my own awareness by attending a Dementia Friends Session.

 

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

Pressure of time.
