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?

As a high street bank we aim to provide a welcoming environment for people with dementia and their carers.

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

Whilst we have good physical access to our Branch, we operate an appointments system, so if people require extra time or privacy to discuss matters, if would be best if appointment was booked in advance.

2. Actions
