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?
Haringey Sixth Form College is committed to joining the Dementia Action Alliance to raise awareness of dementia within and outside the college.
We will host Dementia frriends sessions for staff and students at the college and identify staff and students who wish to become Dementia Friends Champions so that we can deliver these ourselves in future.
We want to encourage contact between students and people living with dementia, and hope to make contacts in the DAA to facilitate placements and work experience for students.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Students will need to have a through understanding of dementia to deliver Dementia Friends sessions to other staff and students. This will take time to organise and might need the support of a staff member. Students will need to makea firm committment to working with people in the community who may have dementia
To join and become members of the DDA
We have signed up as a college to become involved in the organisation and for 13 students to attend the Dementia Friends Champion TrainingRaise awareness of Dementia. Host Dementia Friends sessions for staff and students at the college and book on to Dementia Friends Champion induction days so that we can deliver training ourselves in futureEncourage contact between students and people living with Dementia, use contacts in the DDA to facilitate placements and work experience for students etc.
