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?

Involved in leading work towards Baildon becoming a dementia friendly community, key members of the Baildon Dementia Action group (awarded recognition of working towards Dementia-Friendly Communities). We offer social day care and other activities where people with dementia are included and we have considered other environmental factors such as improved signage. I am a dementia champion and have delivered dementia friends information sessions.

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

Sustaining activities in light of funding cuts (currently met through fundraising and utilising volunteers).
