Rotherham United Community Sports Trust – National Citizen Service

The NCS operations team at RUCST aims to engage young people aged 15-17 years old in a youth development programme (the National Citizen Service) that runs throughout the year in spring summer and autumn. The programme itself encourages young people to take responsibility for their own actions and development by getting them involved in residential and social action activity.

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?

NCS could deliver a social action project for the benefit of those directly and/or indirectly affected by dementia. This could take various forms including a raising awareness campaign, an activity day, an event that brings people together affected by dementia, be-friending etc.


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

Organising appropriate actions  within the resraints of the National Citizen Service project whilst still making a positive impact of the young people and people living with dementia In Rotherham
