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?
Hope Church Winchester is a thriving city centre church with over 300 members.We also run a conference and meetings business primarily for the public sector. The building can seat 600 delegates and has several conference rooms. The facilities are used regularly by Hampshire County Council PaCT team to deliver dementia awareness courses. We intend to carry out training for our front of house staff and welcome teams to become more dementia aware in dealing with the issues of those suffering from dementia.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The numerous demands of a very busy church and conference centre.
Time constraints on full time staff and volunteers.
