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?

Through their regular team meetings covering both our Care Centres and Clubs, we will promote the Dementia Friends programme to our volunteers across the charity.

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

The challenge of this approach is that it is restricted to volunteers attending the meetings. A strategy will be drawn up to reach as many of those non-attending individuals as possible.

2. Actions

  • Dementia Awareness raising for volunteers

    Ensure all volunteers attend a dementia awareness raising session and expand this to include staff and trustees.
