Amey

Amey works as Plymouth City Council's highway's contractor to manage and maintain the city's transport network. We undertake planned maintenance, emergency reactive works and improvement schemes to deliver a world class highways network covering 900km, 1,2000km of footway and cycle paths and 28,000 lighting columns. We are passionate about keeping roads safe and people on the move. We design, build and look after the local highways across the city. Our focus is to keep road users moving with minimum disruption. To do this we use innovative techniques and share best practice across the company to both plan and carry out local maintenance work. We also work closely with our local supply chains to ensure we deliver quality and cost effective highways services. Our highways teams regularly engage with and invest in the communities they serve, ensuring residents are informed and involved in activities in their areas.

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?

Amey Plymouth want to provide support to members of the public accessing the services that we provide. This may be by telephone or email but may also include our workforce who are out on the network daily undertaking repair and maintenance work. We wish to support our staff who may be carers too.

Our ultimate goal would be to make our contract Dementia Friendly.

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

Currently, it is unclear who in the staff team, may also be acting as a carer. We would only know if they volunteered the information to us. Also, prior to our involvement with the Plymouth Dementia Action Alliance, none of our staff have attended awareness sessions.

This is also not a primary area of our business but it is important for both our staff and the members of the public that they come into contact with. We want to ensure our staff are better prepared to deal with situations that may occur during their day-to-day work schedules.
