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 would do this through raising awareness of dementia, working alongside other rganisations to facilitate better communication, care and quality of life for the person with dementia, carers(family/friends)and the people who work with dementia.

We aim to fundraise to support services and projects within the community concerning dementia.

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

From our perspective we are working alongside like-minded people with similar goals and objectives, the challenges to delivering outcomes will depend on mutual cooperation and understanding.
