Girlguiding 1st Milford on Sea Rainbows

Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. Thanks to the dedication and support of 100,000 amazing volunteers, we are active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities. We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good.

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?

 We are educating the next generation in order that they are aware of how someone living with dementia can live well in our community with the right support and understanding. We hope this will help erase the stigma that has surrounded dementia in the past.

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

We have a very young audience, holding their attention is key to the success of the project.
