1. Action Plan

We aim to recognise customers who are living with dementia as a customer focussed organisation we will strive to provide support, care, empathy and understanding in addressing customers individual needs when using our services.  The bank has provided all front line staff with training in recent months in how to spot the signs of dementia and how to help these customers whilst in the branch. Training and raising of awareness around this topic is being co-ordinated for the area by one branch manager.        

 We support organisations connected with dementia.  An awareness day and fundraising event was run in branch during quarter 4 2014 for the Alzheimer’s Society.  The Alzheimer’s Society was also our named Charity in 2014.
