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?

The Grimsby Town Sports and Education Trust works with young people in North east Lincolnshire. Through our programmes we are able to help to educate young people about those living with dementia in our society. Many of the young people who attend our NCS programmes attend a Dementia Friends session and through this we know that we are raising their awareness of dementia. We will continue to have dementia Friends information sessions as part of our NCS programme of events.

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

The challenges we see with delivering these outcomes are that some of the young people may not fully engaged with the information about dementia at the time of the delivery of the Dementia Friends sessions but we hope that by offering the sessions we are letting them  know that  this information available.
