Ealing Central Library

For over 200 years we have been creating award-winning cultural, residential, commercial, community and infrastructure developments in cities across the world. In the UK these include the Channel Tunnel, the Tate Modern - the world's most visited modern art gallery, and the Library of Birmingham, which came top in a poll of the public's favourite new buildings. We have also created landmark buildings across the Middle East, including Oman's parliament - the Majlis, and Royal Opera House, the stunning Yas Viceroy hotel that straddles Abu Dhabi's Formula 1 racetrack, and the prestigious Al Muneera project in Abu Dhabi. The places we create perform an essential role at the heart of the community. In Canada, these include the Brampton Civic Hospital, the High Falls Dam in Northern Ontario and numerous projects for the Vancouver International Airport Authority. Our services make a positive difference to the lives of people in the communities where we live and work. From highways maintenance in Qatar to snow clearance in Canada, we keep people on the move safely and securely. We help to manage schools, libraries and hospitals, providing environments that enable children and adults to learn better and patients to recover more quickly. We pride ourselves on supporting our armed forces, improving the energy efficiency of homes, workplaces and other buildings, and providing sustainable jobs and training.

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 will promote dementia related resources at the library for the community.

As we are a community facility we will endevour to signpost where appropriate to the relevant organisations in Ealing. We will also include these organisations on the information page of the library website.

Further to this we will become a dementia friendly service ensuring our staff become Dementia Friends so that we can better understand and support people living with dementia who use our libraries.

We aim to work cross organisationally within the borough of Ealing to improve the lives of people living with and affected by dementia to achieve our goals.

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

A potential challenge to delivering these outcomes could include inablity to access information on website due to poor computer skills or lack of internet access.
