HU12 Online

HU12 ONLINE aims to bring you local news, views and opinions. These stories will be from and about communities in the HU12 postal code area. But of course we aim to learn from other areas as well, so we will share such useful information when there is a clear benefit for doing so. We aim to raise the issues and debates that just might prompt people to act and get involved and help make a difference in the area. We therefore welcome material from (and about) our local community and voluntary sector groups; our business networks; and those who politically represent us in the HU12 area. We aim to improve and expand our reporting of local news – and trust that local companies and organisations will take advantage of our inexpensive advertising offers in order to help finance that development. HU12 is also able to help local groups with developing their internet presence including help with publishing their first website and setting up on Facebook and Twitter.

By raising awareness and understanding of dementia through promotion of the Dementia Action Alliance and other dementia services and events through HU12 Online and its associated social media outlets.

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

Time constraints.

2. Actions

  • Awareness Raising

    Where possible we will raise our own dementia awareness, as well as the awareness of others, by attending a Dementia Friends session, promoting Dementia Friends sessions and Alzheimer’s Society information. We will make links available on the HU12 Online website so that visitors can easily access quality information about Dementia.

    We will look at the Scie dementia e learning modules at http://www.scie.org.uk/publications/elearning/dementia/index.asp

  • Use of Dementia Friendly Language

    In our articles we will try to refer to ‘people living with dementia’, rather than ‘dementia sufferers’ and use positive language where appropriate.

    We will view the Language of Dementia Part 1 &2 Powerpoint available at http://www.dementiaaction.org.uk/resources/regional_resources
