We work with schools and community groups who need professional advice or project management of creative activities that use theatre skills; organisations or groups who wish to develop theatre projects in their work – for example, using creativity to improve people’s health; bespoke training projects employing actors to deliver ‘role play’ that will enhance the learning experience; general public with a desire to develop skills in performing arts.

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?

Green Room Creative Productions have delivered roleplay dementia awareness workshops for sectors of the community (including carers, public services, schools and businesses)- promoting positive behaviour to help those living with dementia.

We have used drama, storytelling and exercises for memory as creative activity to bring people together.

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

Awareness: people having the knowledge of what we are delivering.

Funding: getting the buy in from grants or sponsorship to subsidise the cost of the service to others who need it.
